There are multiple articles on the web on how to configure a Linux server to support Apple Time Machine. For example:

  [obscured]  /2008/06/ubuntu-as-mac-file-server-and-time-machine-volume/
  [obscured]  /2012/03/03/easy-mac-os-x-lion-10-7-time-machine-backup-using-an-ubuntu-linux-server-11-10-12-04-lts-and-up/
However, I have been unsuccessful installing and configuring this on my old Dell PC and I do not have time to troubleshoot.
I'm looking for someone to create an install script that gets a clean install of Linux ready for Apple Time Machine.

The script needs to:
1.Install all necessary applications to support Apple Time Machine
2.Prompt user for necessary inputs (i.e. Time Machine folder name, username, password, etc…)
3.Create any necessary steps or scripts to run on Mac 
4.Work with my Linux install and Mac OSX 10.7 system
