does the sheeva host hard drives via USB? if it's USB 2.0, you might
want to think what they can handle, that connection won't match SATA
in your desktop/laptop. having said that, it's still faster than the
100Mbit ethernet (if that's what your connection speed will be)
between the two computers

hmm, interesting question. i would guess not, latency and bandwdith
are different concepts, the latter shouldn't affect the former

latency is a function of the quality of the network interfaces, the
length of the wires/distance between wireless receiver, the number of
links and possibly buffer size. maybe some other things will affect
it, but i would guess these would be key

i found this quite useful for explaining the difference between the two:

from that it appears that latency can affect actual bandwidth though,
in certain conditions
