[mythtv-users] SMB or NFS?

I run a linux box that functions mainly as a webserver, but holds my mp3's, 
pictures, and game roms's. I use nfs to get access to those from my mythtv 
box. I don't claim to know anything about linux, and nfs was *really* easy too 
set up.

So take that for what its worth.
