This seems like a VERY bad thing to do anyways.

Usually putting transactional databases of any kind... like bdb
database, or any of hte like, on a shared drive is a recipe for
disaster. I'd guess SQL falls into this same category, but don't know
it. Anyways this would be super slow? why put a db on a share?
