Default Windows Server 2008 Backup from other computers??

So I built myself a old server and toying with the concept that ill use it to backup the 9 computers that my family has. The thing is that I am trying to use Windows Server 2008 to do this since I got a free version from my college. But I am having problems trying to get it to link if I can get it to link to my Windows 7 computer to backup its information. Its giving me this error.

"The Windows Server Backup engine on the is not accessible on the computer that you want to manage backups on. make sure that you are a member of the Administrators or Backup Operators group on that computer."

Anyway I know Home Server would be easier but since I don't have $99 on me I would like to try to get it to work on 2008.

I guess the main thing is that I am trying to use my 2008 Server computer to backup the information on my other 9, XP, Windows 7 computers. Can it be done? And if so how?

Umm, I'm not 100% sure, but isn't the server 2008 backup thinger only for backing up other servers? I didn't think it worked with personal os's.

You should seriously consider WHS. It's so easy to use and the backup feature is the best out there IMO. I have it backing up 5 different computers nightly. It's great.
