    At the moment ive got a hell of alot of movies on my iMac, and its performance is really suffering, i was thinking about putting all my movies on an External Hard drive and accessing them from there using front row. Does anyone know how to get it to show in Front row?

    Just create an alias to the external drive/folder and place it in your user's movies folder.

    Hmmm...

    Would that also work with network volumes?

    ...too easy. That's great news for all the vids I've got sitting on the G4.
