Thanks for the link - gives me an idea of where to start hacking on it.

We are actually using another product, Cortex Backupassist, which works like a 
charm and has no problem backup up to a samba share.  But the guys who set up 
the SQL server before us had Enterprise Manager do the backups to local disc. 
These backups are now getting to big, and fill up the disc with every round.  
And for the life of me I cannot get Enterprise Manager to delete that backup 
schedule.  So I thought, well, double backups isn't such a bad idea, I just 
need to get them diverted somewhere else...
