    Try making a shortcut to your movies folder and putting it in user/movies

    I just make folders in my ~/Movies/ folder, and name them as I want them to appear in Front Row.
    You can drop the aliasses in there.

    yeah but i want it to be organized by tv shows, and movies and stuff like that

    how would front row know the diff?

    i have a folder on my external named movies- with all of my dvds backedup
    and i have a folder named tv shows with simpsons, seinfeld, the office, curb your enthusiasm, etc
