I haven't found a way to do this, of course I haven't really tried very hard either. I'll mess around with mine tomorrow and see if I come up with anything.

What am I missing?
This is what I have posted on PBO forum. Hope this helps !
Path Shortcut in PBO (some, not much, knowledge of "vi" editor required):
1. Share your directory and give a share name (Ex: C:\\Movies, share name: Movies, D:\\MP3, share name: Music, D:\\Photos, share name: Photos)
2. Telnet to your PBO whatever IP it is, user: root, no password
3. Edit (vi) the file /usr/local/etc/rcS
and add at the end :
mkdir -p /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Movies
mount -t cifs //ipaddress of PC/Movies /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Movies
mkdir -p /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Music
mount -t cifs //ipaddress of PC/Music /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Music
mkdir -p /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Photos
mount -t cifs //ipaddress of PC/Photos /tmp/ramfs/volumes/Photos
4. Save your file
5. Issue PBO reboot command from your telnet session (This is equivalent to power off/on from the back of the unit)
Once the PBO comes back, you will be able to stream from the mentioned shares that you will see in PBO Browser, HDD under Movies, Music, Photos.
