    Can two notebooks be backed up on Time Capsule? I assume yes, but wanted to hear from anyone who may have first hand experience doing this.

    And - again an assumption - anyone with Leopard/SL can do this backup easily through Time Machine, correct?


    (On a side note, are there cheaper alternatives to backing up two systems? We already have a wireless network through Linksys.)

    Yes, you can back up multiple computers to a TC, either wirelessly or with wires. I am currently backing up three to one TC, although that does create space issues.

    And, yes, anyone with L/SL can use time machine to backup to TC. If you have a TC on your network, it will appear as one of the choices for use as a backup disk.
