You need to mount the network share outside of MythMusic. Check out
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=280473 for directions on making
Linux mount the share on boot. This should work on FC6. Although step
1 will differ. If you do not want to mount it on boot, look at steps 3
and 4 for manually mounting the share. If you omit the "password="
parameter, you will be prompted and it will not be in your bash history.
Point MythMusic to the mount point.
