I know we have a custom WSUS server running in the intranet, how do I configure my Windows 2008 server installations to use that server for updates?


You need to modify the GPO in which those computer accounts reside in Active Directory Users and Computers.

The setting is Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update.

Change the "Specify Intranet Microsoft Update Service Location" value to http://servername


You need to apply the group policies to the servers that tell them where to get their updates from.
