Not with the stock Linksys firmware. Nor can it be done with Unslung firmware. You can with OpenSlug firmware (which is in beta testing), and is only available here http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/OpenSlug/HomePage.

Note that you can add other devices using a hub, provided the hub is USB 1.x and not USB 2.0 and that there are no more than two external mass storage device.
