    I just set up my time capsule too, and basically have the same question. I have a PC wired directly to it and a Mac wirelessly connected. Just did my first backup of the Mac and that worked fine. I can access the TC disc from both. What is the best way to backup the PC. Time machine as far as I can tell, is not made for the PC. Just transfer files directly onto the TC disc?

    If both your PC and Mac are on at all times, you could save ALL your PC data files onto a folder on your Mac. Have TM backup that folder to TC. TM is built into Leopard and has nothing to do with a PC. Alternatively, you could purchase a PC backup software product that can back up your PC files onto a partition on the TC (though I don't know if TC allows partitions).
