I have this in my .emacs:
;; Backup
(defvar backup-dir (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/ebackup/"))
(defvar autosave-dir (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/eautosave/"))
(setq backup-directory-alist (list (cons ".*" backup-dir)))
(setq auto-save-list-file-prefix autosave-dir)
(setq auto-save-file-name-transforms `((".*" ,autosave-dir t)))

I am not sure, I think it was in the emacs faq.
