A good start is finding the right forum. :-) This forum is specifically for SQL 2012, the upcoming release.
Before you set up a backup strategy, you need to determine what recovery requirements you. If the database goes south, do you need recovery as close to the disaster as possible? Or are you content to restore a backup taken in the wee hours of night?
How big is the database(s)? Is this a production server? Or just test or development?
