    Okay, so I have a pretty extensive wish list for contemplation.

    First, I have a G3 iBook currently running Tiger and unable to run leopard or Leopard server.

    Second, I have a G4 PowerBook 1.33 running leopard.

    Lastly, I have a 320GB External Firewire HD.

    What I want to do is hook up the external HD to my iBook and then hook the iBook via ethernet up to my home router. Then I want to be able to backup to the external HD with Time machine from my PowerBook over my wireless network when I'm home. I also want to be able to access my files (not necessarily just my Time Machine Backup, but all of them) while I'm away from home.

    I don't mind if there is some sort of *nix solution. Whether it's a whole different OS or maybe just some scripting I can do in OS X. I leave this up to the pros, hit me up with some ideas!

    First, connect the drive to the G3.

    Then, automount the network drive on your PB.

    Then, enable network volumes for Time Machine on the PB.

    Done. But unsupported.

    This should work for time machine, thanks. However, I still would like some sort of FTP access, any suggestions?

    Same problem

    I have been search around for a FTP solution as well, and the best I have seen so far is a FTP client that lets you mount the ftp drive: Interarchy, ($59 download)
