Can I stream from a Seagate Dockstar to my XBMC-running Xbox?

I'm getting a 1.5 TB Seagate external hard drive for my birthday (thanks Dad!). What I would like to do is pick up the Seagate FreeAgent Dockstar Network Adapter
and hook it up to my wireless router. In this scenario, my XBox (running XBMC) would be in another room altogether, connected through my local wireless network.
Basically, is this possible? If I set up in this way, will my Xbox be able to stream all the media stored on the external hard drive?
I currently use SMB sharing to stream from my laptop to the Xbox, and I'd like to maintain that simplicity.
(Oh, and if there's a better/cheaper way to accomplish my goal, please feel free to school me.)
