.  If you are running Windows, make sure file sharing is turned on, both computers are in the same workgroup, and that you have at least one folder on the server shared.
.  For automatic backups, write a batch file that copies the files you want to backup to the server then add a Scheduled Task that runs the batch file.
.  Or find a program that will do the backups for you.
.  It's not as complicated as it sounds. Google is your friend.

 Do a search on "build backup server" or look up NAS (network attached storage).  Plenty of stuff out there, windows and Linux flavors.  Good luck.
