Anyone keeping there media on a NAS (Network Drive) that's not local and mapping their iTunes to it successfully?

What I want to do is use my NAS here in NYC, and allow my family in Pittsburgh to be able to share the media thru iTunes on their PC's as well as getting an Apple TV for my parents living room....again all the media is stored here with me in NYC..

I'm 80% sure this CAN work, just looking for someone with experience to confirm.

I have the Buffalo LinkStation:

Amazon.com: Buffalo Technology LinkStation Live 2 TB Network Attached Storage LS-CH2.0TL (Black): Electronics

and a Linksys 54G Router:

Amazon.com: Cisco-Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router (Compatible with Linux): Electronics

Both here in my Apt and it works supurb "Locally", I'm worry about remote devices (3 pc's Apple TV) connecting to it thru a shared iTunes account. We want to create this Music and Movies "NOC" if you will and can access it from anywhere with internet.
