Can I back up my PC and put some of the folders on my mac?

I have a desktop PC and a new MacBook Pro. Instead of buying an external hard drive, can I put my desktop files on the time capsule and pull them off with my macbook?

    Yes and no. While the "Time Machine" program is strictly for Macs (10.5 or newer), it is possible to use the Time Capsule as an external disk. There will be no automatic backup; it will work as an external HD.
