we use windows server backup and then a robocopy script to store in a remote location. the robocopy option is only because we have network latency but you can use server backup to store remotely

2003 -> 2008: a) no more support for tapedrives and backups to this medium, GUI still supports systemstate backup

The 2003 Backup was Veritas Backup Software -> sold to Symantec in ?2004? -> got it?

b) it's not a program! Window Server Backup is a Feature!
Server Manager -> Features -> Add Feature -> Check " Window Server Backup"

C) try it :-) -> place systemstate backup on drive that does not contain any systemstate related files

D:) please try to start ntbackup on a 2008 server :-)

I would go for D, if your Server has AD the system state contains all your database file and would come in very handy when you restore - aka ntbackup.
