    I have an iMac with a Time Capsule that I'm using as my wireless router. I access the Internet from my Dell Inspiron Mini running Ubuntu 8.04. I would also like to use the TC to share files between the iMac and the netbook. How can I mount the TC as a networked drive?

    Mount a Time Capsule from the terminal

    Try This:

    Create a directory on your local machine (in terminal):

    sudo mkdir /media/capsule

    Then run (in terminal)

    sudo mount.cifs //192.168.1.1/"Time Capsule"/ /media/capsule -o pass=password

    Where "Time Capsule" is the name that your mac see's the time capsule and password is the assigned password.

    Regards,
