That Stored Procedure in that context will only create an entry for your named remote server on the local server.

More info:

Are you trying to install a second server?  In which case I believe you will need to run the SQL Server 2008 installation from Disk.

sp_addlogin [ @loginame = ] 'login'
    [ , [ @passwd = ] 'password' ]
    [ , [ @defdb = ] 'database' ]
    [ , [ @deflanguage = ] 'language' ]
    [ , [ @sid = ] sid ]
    [ , [ @encryptopt = ] 'encryption_option' ]
