Can it be done that I install Dropbox on local computer but then select sync folder located on shared (network) location?
According to the edited suggestion it would allow you to remap the substituted drive to your shared location. I have not tested this, but the theory is sound, give it a whirl, and I think it should work.
says "Create a folder on any local drive" ... what if folder is on network drive ..??
The first mapping goes to a substituted drive locally at point 4.
Once Dropbox is setup, you replace this mapping at point 8 by removing the local mapping, then remapping it to the share on your network at point 9-12, effectively tricking dropbox into using a network share.

Apologies for the delay, got busy and missed your comment.
