Backup To Mac Mini External Drive

I currently use SD to create a bootable copy of my MacBook via a USB drive. I'm also looking into buying a Mac Mini, along with a AirPort Extreme base station.

Question: can I connect my current SD backup drive to the mini, and use it as a network backup drive, that I can later connect to my macbook to boot from if needed? Or can I even boot from the net drive?

I realize the backup will be slower than before, but if it isn't more than 2x or so slower, it'd be nice to have that option.

BTW: SD saved my back side .. I used it to back up my system before upgrading to Snow Leopard. But the SL DVD was flaky, and I had to use the SD system to boot from and fix things. Whew, thanks!
