    My primary computer is a Macbook Pro, I use a G4 Powermac as a media server for ATV and casual surfing/working. G4 has 3 HDs one of which I would like to use as a time machine backup. I would also like to sync both machines. Can I do this using the time machine backup? I would like to avoid having 3 copies of everything, wasting space.

    I think you could through partitioning, but I'm not 100%. Maybe some more people could chime in on some solutions.

    HD space revisited. Again, Powermac G4 Quicksilver 933 2002. Currently has 3 hd's one of which is on the optical bus. It would appear as though I'm exempt from the 128gb cap of earlier models. I would like to replace one of the drives with a 3tb sata drive using an IDE to sata adapter. does this seem like a possibility?
