Google `os x lion netatalk time machine'! But briefly, a newer
version of the appletalk protocol is used with lion time
machine which is not supported by netatalk in the ports.
netafp.com (I think that is the right name) has a new version
but at least for now it is closed source (only their customers
get it -- whether they are breaking the GPL or not is a
discussion belongs elsehere). The version in sourceforge is
not quite upto snuff from what I hear.
