Backup to NAS Network attached storage; confused

I just bought a ReadyNAS ( for my small office. I'm wondering if it's possible that I can backup my MacBook Pro to a sparse image on the NAS (4HD, 1.3TB space, RAID-5). Page 18 of the user guide makes me think I can do this no problem. But on Page 19, I see the note box:
Note: Itís very important that the network drive support files larger than 4GB. FAT32-based servers or NAS devices will not work, and fail pretty spectacularly when this limit is reached. Please ensure the network volume is HFS+, NTFS or ext3, all of which support large files.
That indicates to me that my NAS drive won't work for this sort of backup, and that I should just backup my laptop to a FireWire drive or something.

I've read these forums but don't see a definitive answer to this - or any specific reference to that note. Thanks for any insight.
