New user question

I am converting from CVS, with its repository on a local drive to
Subversion (TortoiseSVN).

I would also like to put the SVN repository on a network-attached-storage
(NAS) box (due to the storage size, RAID-5 protection, etc.). (The NAS box
I am using is a Buffalo TeraStation.)

I need some clarification on the warnings in section 4.1.4 of the
TortoiseSVN documentation. The TeraStation sets up storage units as
"shares" that are mounted (as drive letters, ie. L:) by PCs on the
network. The TortoiseSVN documentation strongly warns against using
a network share for the repository. Problems down the road are
suggested if one pursues this. It recommends running svnserve on the
server machine...

Since the TeraStation is a closed box, I can't run svnserve on it.

Am I confusing terminology? Is the "share" that the TeraStation is
providing the Network share that TortoiseSVN is warning against?
Is the only risk of using this when multiple users want to check out the
same file?

Can someone provide clarification? Suggestions?
