Default Connecting external HDD through 003 rack?

Hi!

I just received my new mac pro quad (most recent edition)

Since the firewire 400 ins now all are exchanged for the fw800-system, i naturally bought a fw400 to fw800 cable.

now!

i just bought one cable (which goes from the 003 rack to the computer). that leaves my external hard drive out of the game. but what if i plug my external hard drive into the additional fw400 in of the 003 rack? would that work without affecting the connectivity of the 003 rack- computer negatively?

edit:

or should i kick my lazy ass away to mac store to get myself another fw800 to 400 cable?

I believe if you are going to daisy chain ext fw drives w/the 003, the fw drive must be in the chain first, before going to the 003 ( -> Mac ->fw drive ->003 )
