The port is to be used for sharing a printer.

Plugging in a hard drive will not give you a network-shared hard drive, if that's what you're trying to accomplish. You'll need to buy a different piece of hardware to do that.

According to the Apple website you can plug a hard drive into the new AirPort Extreme unit for wireless backups, etc.
