How would I backup an SQL 2008 DB on a remote computer using Maintenance Plan Wizard?

I would like to schedule backups of our SQL 2008 DBs onto a remote computer using the
Maintenance Plan Wizard. I see how to do this on a local computer. However, the option to
use a shared drive is not offered. How would I do this?

I get the attached error when I enter   \\server\shared$    even though the server is not mapped to this drive.

What is causing this?  Thanks
