Default Possible?

Let's say we have an external harddrive, split up into partitions. Can two computers, one mac and one windows, run it at the same time (assuming that it has two connection ports)?

Finding a hard drive with two connections points would be pretty hard, I think. And, no, I really, really doubt that it would work. They can only do so much!
