Josh is correct - OR - My setup:

Simply add something like below to /etc/init.d/rc.local or even put this 
into /home/mythtv/.bashrc:

smbmount //nas-machine-name/disk1 //mnt/storagedisk1
smbmount //nas-machine-name/disk2 //mnt/storagedisk2
smbmount //nas-machine-name/disk3 //mnt/storagedisk3 .. etc.

And then your Mythbox would simply see the files on your NAS in 
/mnt/storagedisk1 ... etc.

There are many ways to accomplish this, just pick which suits you. 
Remember that I am running NASLite which exports drives as "disk-1" 
"disk-2" "disk-3" etc.. If you run a Linux distro (NASLite is Linux as 
well) your disk names may be different.
