1st I must say State Of The Art SW...
I have a small network and my neigbours in the building are sharing my internet connection. So 1 PC is dedicated to be router, firewall and file server for all the users. Another PC is Apache server running my PHP projects. On this Apache server is also running Netjukebox. Is there a way to use a large collection of media through network share of my file server?

I never have experimented with it until now.

On a Windows based system you can change the "log on" service to a user that has read/write access to the network share.

Here is an example for user share:

I'll give it a try tomorrow and let you know. The NJB is running on win2000 server (apache 1.3.34, PHP 4.4.2 and mysql 3.23.49)
