    hey. i tried asking the Apple Store cronies, but no one seemed to really know the answer. maybe somebody who owns one can check it out for me.

    Say I decide to get an Airport Extreme now that the USB port can use a drive as a Time Machine drive. Can I hookup an external drive with multiple partitions, and have one partition be my Time Machine, one be my Library location for iTunes, and one (or the same as the iTunes one) be a miscellaneous external storage so that if I want to take something with me, I can move it over to the drive hooked up to the Airport Extreme, detach it and take it with me from there? Also, side-question, should my iTunes Library folder be located on this wireless drive, would playback for my Airport Express AirTunes be negatively affected or would it work just as if the music was inside my computer?

    any answers would be much appreciated. thanks.
