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.
