Do you know why the symlinks that I created with mythlink.sh don't work 
when using them from a remote computer with the myth machines hard drive 
connect as an NFS drive over the network? Either that or programs like 
Xine can't play video files via symlinks, and gmplayer and kaffeine 
won't even show symlinks in their file open dialogs?
