    Try making aliases to them in the Movies folder (you can drag a file or folder holding Apple-Option to somewhere and make an alias for it there) or else in iTunes, turn off the options in the preferences to copy everything to the iTunes library and drag your movies into iTunes -- everything in iTunes shows up in Front Row, I think, regardless of where it's stored.
