Some folks have reported difficulties with iPhoto on a NAS, depending on the format of it. See this, for instance:
So my suggestion is to create a library on the NAS and import a few pics and test it thoroughly before committing your entire library to it.
Regardless of where you have your library, iPhoto does not have a multi-user database. Period. And no freeware will change the nature of that beast. So, if you're going to have mulitple users remember that iPhoto cannot have two Users writing to the database at the same time. If you do, you will corrupt the library. If more than one user tries to access the library at a time, the risk of corruption increases significantly. So, back up.

Thanks for the reply, I should've searched for 'network drives' before posting I guess, instead I searched 'NAS'.
Both me and my girlfriend take quite a few photos and we've been using iPhoto Library Manager so that we can use the same library under our different logons. There's some interesting info on that thread, thanks.24" iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
