NAS <--ethernet--> computer <--FW800--> external disk

The NAS can handle external USB drives and the external disk has USB2 so 
I could set it up like this

external disk <--USB2--> NAS <--ethernet--> computer

but I assumed it meant that I had to transfer the data from the external 
disk to the computer via both USB and ethernet and then transfer it back 
to the NAS over ethernet which, intutively, sounded slow.
