Does SQL Server 2005 allow manual inserts into the reporting server database?  I would like to populate the necessary tables/columns in the reporting database and have reports scheduled and executed without going through reporting services.

The reporting services database schema isn't documented and frequently changes between versions. Having said that, you do have an option to programatically generate report definition files (refer to : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms170667%28v=SQL.90%29.aspx).

You can use reporting services scripting language to create an rss file:

Another way to do it would be through SQL management studio. Create a subscription all the way until the last step. Then click on script to file. Refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms152908%28v=SQL.90%29.aspx on how to run rss files.

I'm looking for an automated way to create the reports.  I think I want to create the RDL, and then insert the schedule with a script or code.  Which tables in the reporting database do I have to update to have an automated report delivered?

For the schedules, following are some of the tables that will need modifications for sure (there might be more): ActiveSubscription, Notifications, ReportSchedule, Schedule, Subscriptions. You will also need to set up a job and modify the corresponding columns in these tables to update with the job name generated.

I would advise creating a test subscription and have SQL profiler running the background to make sure that you don't miss anything.
