10.5: Use an unsupported local filesystem with Time Machine
Authored by: digitist on May 07, '10 05:19:45AM

If you're handy with Linux you can make a afp server from an old computer.

I have the afp server up and running based on Ubuntu 10.04LTS on an AMD machine. Bonjour did see it one time only, but that will take some fiddling and reading up on all the comments posted on the before mentioned site.
