    Do you have a Time Capsule or an external hard drive? You need either Apple's Time Capsule product, an external hard drive with USB/FireWire connectors, or like some forum members, an AirPort Extreme with the external hard drive connected into it rather than directly to your computer system to backup with Time Machine.
