I have an airport extreme. I would like to attach my external hard drive to it and have "time machine" backup to it. It seems that "time machine" can only backup to a drive that is physically attach to the machine. Is that so? If not, how can I get it to work?

It appears to be possible, but it doesn't look like it's supported or very reliable...  Apple's website says "You can designate just about any HFS+ formatted FireWire or USB drive connected to a Mac as a Time Machine backup drive."  http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/timemachine.html
