    I just connected a new 750 GB drive to my Airport Extreme for Airport Disk sharing, and I want to polish it up with Front Row. Currently I just have an alias inside my Movies folder, but ideally I want the drive to show up as a "source" inside FR. Any suggestions?

    Also, how can I make an alias for a network drive instead of the folders inside?

    Use iTunes (obviously you'll have to convert your content to MPEG4 and tag them if you're into descriptions for each episode etc).

    Thanks for the response, Kilamite. I actually found more information searching the forums and it looks like alias usage is the most efficient way of getting the job done. I'll keep looking, though.
