    Here's the story:

    I have a MBP (the one in my sig) and I use a 320 GB firewire HD for Time Machine. That has been working dandy for about a month. Now yesterday I picked up a G4 Powermac and put a fresh Tiger install on it, ran the updates, etc. I turn on file sharing and screen sharing and all that fun jazz. I then proceed to hook it up via ethernet to my router and to hook up my external HD to it. I can access the external drive and share the screen of the G4 and everything seems cool. Then I pray that time machine will work remotely.... and that prayer was not answered my friends :(. It mounts on my MBP's desktop and TM looks like it's gonna do it's thing and then it says that the backup image cannot be created. I already tried doing the "unsupported volumes defaults hack" in the terminal to no avail. Any suggestions?

    Ha! Nevermind, I just tried to copy a movie from that external drive to my MBP and it was estimating 45 minutes, so it looks like the external won't be gettin hooked up that that Powermac after all.
