Time Capsule Question

So here is my prediciment.

I'm in college, and therefore cannot setup my own wireless network. (Stupid restrictions)

Anyways, I bought a Time Capsule to function as a home wireless network and a backup drive, assuming that when I arrived at school, I'd be able to set up the Time Capsule to simply be a wireless backup. I've been attempting it for the past few days unsuccessfully, and any help would be appreciated.

What exactly isn't working?

I assume you have a Mac running Leopard. Connect the two using an ethernet cable, and you should have Leopard prompt you to use the Time Capsule as a backup drive.

From there, you can set up the wireless network using the Airport Utility, and disconnect the ethernet cable, and reconnect using the wireless settings you just configured.
