From Apple's site:

Quote:
You can designate just about any HFS+ formatted FireWire or USB drive connected to a Mac as a Time Machine backup drive. Time Machine can also back up to another Mac running Leopard with Personal File Sharing, Leopard Server, or Xsan storage devices.
In other words, no.

D3v1L80Y: Haven't some people been backing up to SAMBA shares on *NIX servers? I thought I just saw a tip on this somewhere.
