SQL database as a remote drive or NAS

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
How do I set up SQL 2008 to store database files on a remote drive ar a NAS?
If I go to Server Properties and select Database Settings, under Database default locations I am only given the options for locat drives.  I want to store all of my data on a NAS.
Is this even possible?
