Pretty much what the subject line states.

Is there a way that I can get Time Machine on my MacBook Pro (running Lion) to use the external hard drive that is currently connected to my Mac Mini?

I have Time Machine on the Mac Mini using the attached external HDD without problem, but I'd like to leverage that external HDD further by using it as the repository of my MBP Time Machine data.

I was thinking of purchasing one of those Western DIgital My Book Live external hard drives, but I'm not impressed with what I am seeing in the speed department, so I was hoping to use the direct connection instead.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
