How do you re-associate an Airport Time Machine backup after migrating to a new mac?

I used the migration assistant to copy my files directly from my old Mac to a new one.

"Installing my dev copy of 10.6 over my Leopard install fixed this issue. I am not sure if 10.6 is ""smarter"" about Airport Drives/Time Machine OR if there were some preferences that a reinstall fixed.

I can say that 10.6 ""appears smarter"" because it uses the Time Macing icon to indicate my Time Machine drive. Even when Time machine was working properly on my previous MacBook, it used a generic white drive icon.

So if anybody else runs into this issue either an upgrade or reinstall should help."
