[mythtv-users] Music store on network share

I followed your instructions, and had to change your referance "SMBFS" to "CIFS" since SMBFS command is no longer supported in fc6. Once changing that ref, I at least got a access denied return from my windows box. I also found out that my windows box does not allow NTLM auth. So what I need is a command that will allow me to specify the auth type in the command line. I would like to specify Kerberos, but will settle for NTLM2 auth. However your docs did put me on to the right track for which I am greatful. Got any ideas?

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.
