You can do 2 things:

1) Just buy an USB 2.0 drive and share it on the root on the drive.

2) Buy one here: (dont know if they are also available in sweden).

Any single drive NAS would do as well, since most have USB and sometimes even Firewire on them. If you want to go wireless then only decent product I've seen (and tested) is the Apple Time Capsule. There are others but they are usually much more expensive.

Another option would be to use my home server for backup of my Airbook.. anyway seen a service for Time Machine.. i know that you can mess with OSX to use a smb share to backup on, but it dosent seem quite stable..

I do exactly that. It seems pretty stable now that I've gotten it set up (pain). If you want to do it, this guide helped me, even though it's for the Ready NAS.

Drives that have USB and Ethernet will only allow one port to be used at once, so your best bet is Ethernet and just use SMB to do the backups over the network. NAS's are often slow though, so perhaps just a USB hard disk would be a better option.
