Is it possible to connect two computers to one external USB hard drive? If so, how? And, would there be a need for a special adapter?

What are you planning on doing with it? Backing up? Just storing documents? Streaming music or hosting stuff? Do you allready have a usb hdd? Or are you planning on buying one? Maybe you should think of buying a NAS. You can connect a NAS to your modem and let it be part of your network. Every pc in the network can reach the NAS and work with it. And if you buy a NAS with more then one bay, you can use it in Raid and backup. I own a Synology DS-110j and I have two laptops, a pc and two Samsung Galaxy that can work with it over wifi. I can even reach the NAS over the internet, no matter what pc im on.
Using a NAS isnt realy backing up. For realy truly backing up you should follow these rules: http://www.taobackup.com/
