Praveen,
 
    You should be using an Exchange aware backup package (built-in backup on
WS03 included) which handles the complexities of taking a consistent set of
files. The detail (up to a point) is not yours to worry about. That said
your backup is no use unless you're practiced in restoring it under a
varying set of circumstances and then a knowledge of the details will be
very useful. Get backing up and aim to understand what is going on and
practice recovery. Needless to say you can drown in information from
Microsoft and there are several worthy Exchange 2003 books which can help
out. Practice recovery in the lab is essential.
 
    As you're asking the question I presume you're not well acquainted with
the complexities this subject can offer. Keep it simple to start with and
backup to tape or disk using Microsoft's built-in backup would be my initial
approach. Once you understand better what you're after the complexities if
needed can follow.
