Are you are able to connect to and mount the drive manually? If so, you should probably just need to do step 3c.
You can always use a different backup program like Carbon Copy Cloner and you get more control over space.
From memory you can format any drive as an OSX extended disk and plug it into the USB port on the airport to use it as a time machine drive. If you want to connect straight to a network drive look at this page - it may help.
I did something similar a few years ago but ended up changing to a program to copy areas of my mac to a folder on my home server which is then set to back itself up anyway.
Hope it helps
