Capital vs. Capitol

What's the difference? Do they have the same etymology? I just moved to the Sacramento area and I'm seeing the one with the "o" more often than usual. I think "capitol" just refers to the building and "capital" refers to everything else, but I could be wrong.

Thanks in advance!
