the "old" airport extremes have a USB print server port -- these will not work to network a HDD. As I understand it, to share a network HDD, you'd need a network drive (a standard HDD in a Network Accessed Storage ("NAS") enclosure). You'd connect this to your Airport Extreme via the ethernet port on the Airport (meaning you'd lose the capability to connect a computer to ethernet port).
