    I have two questions:

    1. Can I connect an external HD to both my AEBS (via usb) and my Mac Mini via FW800?

    2. If I can't do the below - lets say I connect my external HD to my Mac Mini via FW800 - with the drive be accessible on the network if my Mac Mini is sleeping?

    I'm just trying to figure out what is the most efficient/produce the best speed - way to connect an external HD to my network.

    Cheers.

    No and no.

    Connect the harddrive to your AEBS and share it over the network. Connect your mini via ethernet and you should get a similar HDD access speed + be able to access the HDD while the mini is sleeping.
