Post Creating a back up shell script

hi guys,

i need a backup script that has some options in it for my family to use and i need some help with the coding.
The script needs to do the following for us:

1.The utility will ask the user which directory to backup
2.The utility will ask for the fullpathname of the backup file to create.
Also I need the utility to ask any user if they would require another backup? if no the user can enter a n=no. If no comment the backup utility will loop back and repeat steps 1 and 2

I need help writing the code for this utility any help will be greatly appreciated
