There are a couple reasons they are in different folders. The best reason
is that if I have my Christmas music in the same folders as my "normal"
music, then when I hit ALL SHUFFLE, I could get some Bing Crosby White
Christmas in the middle of July. I'm not a fan of that idea. Also, other
programs I'm using (Subsonic on Ubuntu, and MediaMonkey on Windows 7) both
have the ability to include multiple folders. So if I don't want to hear
Christmas, I just unselect it from Subsonic, or chose the Music Tree in
MediaMonkey and I don't have to worry. It'd be nice to include this
feature, but it's not a big deal.
I thought about that sym link idea. Right now, I share out (via NFS) from
my FreeNAS box to my MythBuntu Backend (virtual) server. I could map the
root folder, and then sym link in the folders I want included. I'll let
you guys know how that turns out. Thanks for the help!
