Looking for some help please! :[

here's what I have: early 2008 IMAC '24 3.06 GHz intel core 2 duo
4gb 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM with a 1 TB hard drive.

Recently purchased a 2 TB Time Capsule.

I would like to have the TC hardwired to the IMAC, while also utilizing the wifi from the TC for the rest of the house. I'd like to keep the IMAC on the ethernet, I get great speeds and don't believe wifi could match them.
I have an ethernet cable from the cable modem to the TC, and another ethernet cable from TC to the IMAC.

Have NO idea what settings to choose in airport utility to configure this setup. apple web site is of little help
Please help!
So before I call apple I would like to appeal to the experts on the forums!

many thanks!
