Wrap NFS mounting NAS device

I am totally new to pfsense (been using monowall for a couple of years). I think pfsense is great. I can finally use my 54g minipci card.
I just bought a cheap NAS Drive kit from office depot, ACS brand. I was curious if it was possible to modify my installation (by editting fstab, or config.inc) to NFS mount a NAS drive so I can let syslogd output just live there. Is there already functionality built in somewhere for this type of thing?
I am not sure if anyone is familiar with this NAS thing from ADS. It includes a web interface, ftp server, webserver, and even a bittorrent client. The only thing it lacks is a syslogd server, but maybe someone has hacked the firmware for such purpose? I threw together a quick and dirty syslogd.java which just saves it off to a text file on my windows box, but this would be really nice to just go the the NAS drive.
Maybe even mysql can have its dynamic contents on NAS storage.
I used to do lots of linux and solaris, but my skills have dwindled with time. Any tips or pointer are greatly appreciated.

You want a remote syslog facility. Logs on pfSense are stored in a ram disk in CLOG format.
