We are trying to create a redundant tunnel with a cisco 5505 ASA version 8.3. So if we lose data on the primary circuit it will pick on the backup secondary circuit. There is a tunnel from the home office to the remote branch. How would it be configured on both ends?

In the ASA's VPN config, you would have a line like:

set peer x.x.x.x  


You can simply add in a 2nd IP to that line:

set peer x.x.x.x y.y.y.y  

If the 1st is unresponsive, it will try the next.    

I don't think that will be a stateful failover, so sessions would have to be reestablished ....   but not 100% sure on that.
