Cannot copy database

I'm trying to copy an empty database from the client to the network.  I'm getting this error message:
 
"The specified location for your new database is invalid.  A database must be created on a drive on your machine"
 
Why is this a limitation?  Do I have to manually copy all of the files to the network?  What about the sql instance? 
 
Thanks for any help on this issue......
