Can I have an Airport Express and Airport Extreme running at the same time?

I currently have an Airport Express with an iMac, MacBook and Apple TV running off it (this also allows Air Tunes). Next to my iMac are six external hard drives which ideally I would like away from my iMac - preferably in a cupboard somewhere else in the house. I wondered whether I could simply move the external hard drives away and connect them using a USB hub to an Airport Extreme and therefore connect to them wirelessly from both computers without it affecting the set up I already have with the Airport Express.

    Yes. For the past five years, many owners have been doing so, or something similar, or something more challenging, without any conflict.
