Do you have a directory /Volumes/TimeMachine BEFORE you issue the mount command?
The mount command MUST have a directory to mount the volume on top of.
If /Volumes/TimeMachine is your normal mount point, then you will want to remove that directory when you are finished with it. -OR- create a temporary directory you can mount on top of. That way you will not mess up your normal Time Machine backup mount point.
I think i've found a clever way to circumvent this problem.
What if i repartition my original hard drive into three. leave one partition for my current stuff, a second partition for the time machine back up, and a third partition as a bootable image of my OSX install DVD. Then I will temporarily disconnect my dvd drive and hook up the SSD and the HDD simultaneously, boot using the OSX install partition, and restore the time machine image to the SSD...
Does anyone see a problem with that? (I realize this isn't the correct forum for that anymore)
