i don't see a way to schedule a stored procedure in SQL server 2008. I am looking for the job wizard but I keep getting the new job window. when i schedule a step, it does not give me the option to choose a stored procedure.

Do you see SQL Agent in Management Studio? This is where you will be able to schedule tasks

You schedule an entire job, not just a step.

Right-click on the Job, select "Properties", click on the "Schedules" tab, and create the schedule(s) you need from there.

You won't choose a stored procedure.  You'll execute a command:

agent
Create a new job, add a new step to the job and give it a name, and enter in your command that runs the stored procedure.  Make sure you select the database, and the proxy that should run the job in the Run As drop down.  Then go through the other settings (Schedule, etc) and configure the job.
