Media on networked computers
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:01:29 pm »
I have an older box that i think would go nice in my living room with Linux MCE on it.  My new computer, which has to stay in another room, has a huge RAID 5 on it (NTFS) and i would like to keep most of my media there.

How easy is it to mount a network drive to Linux MCE and use it as my primary means of storage?

I probably won't be using any DVR functions, just using it to play ripped DVDs and torrented HD movies.

It should be easy:

see the last section " Generic NFS/Samba Shares (1769/1678)"
