Yes, but this is not supported by Apple, who supports Time Capsule for Time Machine use.

I have the same set-up. As long as I have the computer wired with an ethernet cable to the AirPort Extreme it works, but as soon as I disconnect the ethernet cable the backup of my computer to the LaCie Hard Drive no longer works. :-(
