The point is that you're not actually mounting the drive twice. First you mount the drive itself on one computer. Then that computer is creating a virtual file system (file sharing), which gets mounted on the second computer. It's no different than when you use file sharing to pull up your computer's HD somewhere else, except that here the networking is being done using FW400 cables instead of CAT5/6 cables.
