Are you sure?

This suggests otherwise:

The "share" in this case is any network share, be it Windows networking,
samba, NFS or what-have-you. It's also a bad idea from a performance and
reliability standpoint anyway, as the network connection can go down
anytime for any number of reasons while the subversion libraries are
working on the repository...

It *might* work with the very latest version of samba running on the
Terastation (which, considering the moldy software versions often found
on those Linux-based NASes, is highly unlikely), but your best be would
be to install svnserve on it directly.
