    So I've been reading about the new Time Capsule and I am thinking about purchasing it. However, if I am still using Tiger and don't have Time Machine is it still going to work for me? I would like to backup my MacBook Pro (wirelessly) and my PC running Windows XP (wireless or plugged in). Lastly, I also like the idea of plugging in my printer so it would be accessible by my PC, Macbook Pro and another PC laptop my husband has. Can I do all of this with Time Capsule alone or do I need any other software/hardware? I have had no luck networking my computers together at this point (just with my wireless modem) so I'm not sure if it will be any easier with the time capsule. Any advice would be appreciated.

    TC can only backup a Mac running Leopard. You can use it as a NAS using a PC and you can share your printer over the network with a mixed environment with Macs and PC running Tiger, Leopard and Win XP.
