Can this be done? Or does the BootCamp partition have to be on the internal startup drive?

Windows resets the USB bus during boot up so it won't work, and Windows can't boot from firewire. So I'm pretty sure it has to be on your internal drive(s).

Yes, I just read up (should have done that first) - there are ways to hack it so that it works, but I can't be arsed, as we say in England.
