I don't really know anything about writing scripts, but if you make the part that tells the computer to back itself up, you can set iCal events to run scripts, so you'd just make the event, tell it to run the script and repeat it however often you want.

War- do you know if you could use a non-apple box for the backup with time machine?  I've got an old P2 that i'm going to set up sometime soon for server-ing
