Default Daisy chain Interface and hard drive???

I'm really frustrated now. I am trying to hook up an additional audio hard drive to my Mac Book Pro, and was told to purchase an Express Card in order to obtain two FW ports. I purchased the card today, only to find out that the computer does not have an Express Card port. Is it possible to "daisy chain" an external hard drive and an Audio Interface "both devices are FW" through one FW port in the computer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate. Again. thanks!

might get better performance with them separate but you still should be able to go macbook - drive - audio interface, assuming the drive has 2 firewire ports.
