Server backups

I'm using a scheduled backup on an Xserve in a small company. This script needs to run regardless of whether there is any user logged in, and definitely when there is no administrator logged in. As I understand it this is possible by setting up the crontab for user 'system' or 'nobody', but I'm having problems doing this. Super Duper's script appears to hard code a path to the logged-in user's (admin) library. I'm also unclear how to move a script between crontabs for different users - I tried using a GUI utility called Cronnix but it would not let me move a script between users.

My boss is breaking my balls over this especially having coughed up the registration fee, so please help!
