How to make Time Machine backups over network without OS X server?

I haven't found an answer to my specific setting, so I hope you can help me.

At our institute, we have several Macs (from 10.6 to 10.8) but not one is running a server version. In the one running 10.8 there are 4.5 TB of hard-drives from which 2 x 2 TB are raided together (mirrored) with to goal to use them as a Time Machine backup for all other Macs. All the Macs are connected over the institute network.

Now, how do I set up everything such that all Macs can use Time Machine to backup to this one Mac?

I've read that this might be easier when the target Mac would run OSXOS X Server. But

How is it also possible without installing OSXOS X server? And how?

Thank you very much in advance.

All the best, Pascal
