I have read various howto's ( but not sure any were made for Lion. I got the latest netatalk setup on Ubuntu, and see the drive in Lion Finder. I created the sparsebundle and named it with my computer-name.sparsebundle but when I go into Time Machine->SelectDisk I don't get the option for my AFP drive. What can I try?

I believe that as of Lion, your AFP server must support DHX2 or SRP authentication. Make sure your installation of netatalk has DHX2 or SRP working (not just original DHX[1] which it seems like netatalk defaults to).

I found the problem, in the share listing in AppleVolumes.default there is a tm option to enable timemachime on the volume.
