    You need to have a hard drive plugged into the base station for it to be accessible over the wireless network. Also, which tutorials have you been reading? What in particular are you getting hung up on?

    You can download "Carbon Copy" and it is a free program. You can download "SuperDuper" not free but it is the one I use. You can even use "Time Machine" but that doesn't make a bootable copy.
