    Yes. It will back up everything unless you specify otherwise.

    I believe (somebody correct me if I'm wrong) that a partition on the drive will be created for each machine you are backing up.

    It doesn't actually create a separate partition, but two separate files for each backup will be created. I back up both my MBP and my wife's MB on the same Time Capsule along with several GBs of miscellaneous files.
