Hey Bob - Here is what I would do since I hate having new pieces of gear sit around unused :-)

 

I would connect it locally via USB or FireWire and start using Time Machine. There is really nothing to it, but at least you'll have a backup of all your stuff. Who knows, you may be perfectly happy leaving it connected and decide not to go the Airport Extreme route. The first TM backup will take a while, but subsequent backups will be seamless and go really fast.

 

This way if you decide you still want to get the AE you will have a baseline to compare it to. Locally connected backup disk and noise v. AE connected disk & slower backup times.

 

Or, perhaps the best option right now is to get outside and enjoy the weather this afternoon. Slightly overcast but a nice 60 degrees. Not bad.

Ok,I hooked up the Seagate via USB and a popup box says"Do you want to use Freeagent drive to backup with Time Machine".My 2 options are to cancel or use as backup disk.What to do?Thanks,Bob
