I have a web page that works fine if I put all the items i want to stream or show under the root directory, but I would like to put the some on a separate drive to conserve space.

Does anyone know how I could make a separate drive appear to the website as if it was within the root directory?

I forgot to add, I am running the Synology DS209+ with 2 separate drives not raided.  The Synology DS209+ runs Linux.

To answer both questions:

Yes, Linux sees the drive, when I go into Network on Vista, and go into the NAS, everything appears.

The server sits on my desk but family and friends from around the world are able to view the web pages.

Thanks

I could probably do a soft link but unsure how it would be since the main drive is called volume1 and the other is called volume2.  Also, where would it go to become permanent?

why dont you just use the built in ftp on linux put a link on your webpage to ftp://theipaddressofthe linuxbox:21

that should work although I would suggest you use filezilla
http://filezilla-project.org/

for your friend to access your ftp linux box

Can the NAS receive its own public IP address?   That would allow you to use full URLs from within Flowplayer or any other type of link.

Thank you to all,

To answer the following question:

so is flowplayer installed on you linux box - All Flowplayer is, are flash and java scripts that i inserted into my webpage.

Can the NAS receive its own public IP address?   That would allow you to use full URLs from within Flowplayer or any other type of link. - I do not have a static IP but I do have a hard IP with VPN set up in the router, Japan seems to wonder why someone would actually need the own static IP.  So what I use is www.noip.com to give it a web address.

In the end, I used FTP://URL/Movie and that seems to work great.

Thanks to all.
