Can I share eSATA drives between 2 MAC's with Direct Fibre channel connections?

I feel like I am asking a dumb question however I'll admit I know nothing about fiber channel. Here is the scenario: I have two Apple G5 edit suites running Final Cut Pro. Both have eSATA drives for local (fast) storage. Can I share both drives to both edit suites by directly linking them by Fiber Channel? As it is only workstations I wouldn't require an FC switch would I? Also would the eSATA drives be accessable by other workstations on the network via a CAT5 cable (to a 10/100Mbps switch for small items not requiring the bandwidth).

If I wanted to add a third edit suite in the future could I turn it into a 2Gb token ring by the same direct FC connection to both G5's?
