    You cannot add any kind of Network Attached Storage device to the pool (the drives need to be local).  You can only add hard drives locally through typical hard drive connections (PATA, SATA, USB 2.0, FireWire).

    Actually, not quite true.  Some people have tried using iSCSI as part of the pool - the problem was that DE and the related services was starting before the iSCSI services, then complaining that it couldn't find the disk(s).  I don't think it got anywhere though.
