    You can't install Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server on a time capsule. A time capsule is not a Mac, it is a standalone piece of hardware with it's own closed operating system and software. You cannot add or remove the software on a time capsule, you can only configure it.


    You can use time capsule as a file server without installing Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server:



    Good luck!
