PC to iMac using a Timecapsule.
I am going to be getting the new iMac when it comes out in the next few weeks. I'm currently using a PC and have just acquired a Timecapsule. Is it possible to back up my PC to the TC and then when I get the iMac do a restore from TC backup? If so could somebody explain how to do this? I will be using an Ethernet cable initially so it's just help with the backup side on the PC. Also will there be any conflict from PC to Mac that I need to worry about?

Well, you can't do a "Time Machine" backup from the Windows box. You could make a folder on a Time Capsule and write files to it from the PC you want to keep. You won't be able to run Windows apps on the Mac directly, so you probably only need to worry about documents you want to keep.
