Windows Server Backup Schedule

I need a little help with this.  

Customer is using some freebie backup M-F, but wants a "bare metal" backup on Sat and Sun.  I found the built in Windows Server Backup (WSB) pretty competent in this area, even backs up the Exhange data store flawlessly.

But I can't seem to schedule it to just do the backup on Sat and Sun.  I have read about WBADMIN, but can't seem to make this go.

Appreciate some insight!

Setup the backup Job, save it and add it to the Task scheduler.
