find backup directory

Hello!
MSQL2000:
I want to make db-backup (maintenance) but haven't enough space on the
discs that are physically in the machine. I have enough on the network, but
i can't choose an network-drive, when
i want to specify the backup directory.

What to do?

Enterprise Manager only displays the local drives, but you can just
type in the UNC path: \\Server\Share\Folder.

Create a backup device in enterprise manager. You can backup to network
locations this way.

Note, as others have said, you can use UNC paths. However, SQL Server Agent
must be running in a user context that can map those drives w/o human
intervention.
