I have a customer with one windows machine and  5  macs. They would like to have the xp machine access the time capsule. They do not have any software that may have come with the  time capusle. Can some one give step by step directions on how to connect the xp computer to the time capsule, and if any road block i should keep an eye out for?

You'll find a walkthrough here:

Basically,

    * Install Bonjour for Windows from the CD included with Time Capsule (or from link below)
    * Map a drive to the Time Capsule
    * Use your favorite Backup program to backup to the Time Capsule


You will need to install Bonjour for Windows, which you can get at
