networking video stations

We are going to simplyfy our work-flow in our studio and are looking at centralised storage for our video editors (x3). has anyone experience in this?
We are thinking of upgrading to a Gigabit network, getting a NAS box (http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=437050) and then using Premier Pro on 3 local machines to capture to and edit video files from the NAS box.
I need to find out if that is possible in the first place (e.g. if Premier will work properly if with project files that reside on a network drive (any path finding problems, unexpected slwonesses), and whether a NAS box over a Gigabox network can provide enough power to have 3 people editing away on it.
Thanks so much for your thoughts on this. If you find the above set-up not a good idea, and/or haev seen more efficent set-ups, what are they? We are currently working with internal and externla hard disks that do not really have suffienct capacity and it is too confusing (e.g. back-ups, etc)
We are not familiar with the said product. The description does not indicate video editing applications so this might not be tuned for editing purpose. To edit and playback real time reliabily is a bit tricky and particlar attention must be paid on access latency and such.
What video resolution are you considering? DV25, HDV or higher?
