Xen Desktop 5 / SCVMM / Hyper-V question

I'm trying to configure XD5 using the Quick Deploy feature, and I'm experiencing difficulty at the "Resources" step.  I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to do here...  When I click on the "Browse" button I see the names of the VMs hosted on Hyper-V, but none of these can be selected.  And because I can't select anything there, everything else on this page remains blank.  Based on what I've read, it seemed like I'd need to setup CSVs to make this work, but then I found this on Citrix's website:

"If you are using XenDesktop to create your VMs, rather than selecting an existing catalog, configure your Hyper-V deployment as follows:

For a single Hyper-V host deployment, create a Windows network share that is writeable by the System Center Virtual Machine Manager administrator account on the Hyper-V server."

(From here: http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/xendesktop-rho/cds-scvmm-rho.html)

So I have two questions:

1) How would I create a share that is "writeable by the System Center Virtual Machine Manager administrator account on the Hyper-V server"?
2) How will implementing this change make any difference on the "Resource" step of the Quick Deploy configuration?

Are you using a Hyper-V cluster in your XD5 environment?

The share specified in that link needed specific permissions - specifically, the SCVMM account needed access to it.
