I'm trying to get out of the PC world and into a Mac. I currently have a win XP pro desktop and, unfortunately, have to buy a PC laptop for the business school program I am attending. My fiance has a Powerbook with Panther on it and I'm going to buy a Mac Mini (If I can't by a Powerbook, since I'm required to buy the PC laptop, I'm getting my Mac fix somehow). My question is, if I wiped the two harddrives in the Dell and made it a barebones XP machine, can I use it as a network server and back-up the two Macs to the dell's second harddrive? They will all be connected by an Airport Extreme. I've shard files back and forth between the PB and my Dell, but I want something more robust and something I can automate so I am not just copying, connecting, and manually moving files between the two. Thanks.
