My Buffalo Linkstation NAS runs a minimal version of Debian and has 2
USB ports for connecting extra storage or a printer. If I connect an
external USB drive it shows up in Nautilus on the network so I guess
that it is possible. As to how to configure I can't help; with the
Linkstation it just works.
