You can use the external for anything you want in conjunction with TM. TimeMachine creates it's own file image (sparse bundle) that won't interfere with anything. Just keep in mind that the more tasks/data you keep using for the drive the more space you will reduce to use for TM.

As a general rule I give TM a complete drive (or at the very least a complete partition) and do not use it for anything else (movies, music etc0.
