Time Machine backs up everything it can find that's connected locally. So, for example, I have 3 drives inside my Mac Pro. Time Machine tries to back them all up. I tell it to ignore one of them since I only use it for video that I keep on tape and could re-capture if I need to.

You can only have 1 Time Machine drive, but that one drive can back up multiple other drives. (I wish I could assign a diffferent firewire drive to back up each internal drive, but alas, that's not possible.)

As for whether it interfears with the computer or not, I couldn't say. I haven't had any problems yet (I use Final Cut and DVD Studio Pro a lot) so I'd think it's fine. But I couldn't say for sure.
