Replicating and backing up logs without overwriting previous ones

I would like to know best practices for replicating and backing up logs without overwriting previous logs, while maintaining history of logs, and how this can be automated using SQL Server 2000 on an NT platform.

Well, you could just configure a maintenance plan to backup the databases to disk. Each file will have a distinct name designated by date and time backup was executed. You can then copy these to one or more machines by adding a step to the job in that maintenance plan and doing an xcopy. Each backup is tracked in sysbackuphistory.
