I have four drives in an array - one an office share, another a share for pictures. I currently have the office share configured to do a full backup at 1am to one of the remaining drives:

A Office Share - B. Office Share Backup in Server 2008

Can windows server 2008 backup be configured to include the above configuration and:
C. Picture Share - D. Picture Share Backup in Server 2008

We can only schedule on backup process and I feel we'd like to schedule two.

Well, the default scheduled backup job will let you backup multiple sources but you need a single destination.

But, you could keep your office share full backup. then, just create a scheduled job to perform the picture share backup.

Do you mean "Both to Occur" in the same time window?

If that's your question, I suppose you could, but why would you want too?

Backup Job A will execute and Backup Job B will be in the que waiting for Job A to finish.

Depending on how high-end your system resouces are (i.e. controller, drives, memory, I/O throughput, etc.) will determine how fast your backups complete.

No - I'd like one to start and finish at 1am (I've seen the logs, it's completed within a few minutes) and another to begin say at 3am

I don't know for certain about Server 2008 backup.  Simultaneous backup to a tape drive would not be logical, however, it may be possible given the right hardware resources to have smultaneous D2D backup.

Job A backs up Source A to Target Disk A

Job b backs up Source B to Target Disk B

I hear NetBackup can via feature called multiplexing.

You could test it and see.
