Cannot process packages when source files are on network share.

I have reinstalled SMS/IIS/SQL from scratch. I am able to distribute packages that have a source direrectory location of "Local drive on site server", however, if I try to use "Network path (UNC name)", I get error messages for the "SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER" component: Message ID 2302:

SMS Distribution Manager failed to preocess package "Test Package" (pack....)

I viewed the distmgr.log file on the SMS server, and found the relevant lines (pasted into the code snipplet). It seems the Win32 Error 5 is an Access Denied error message. The "Administrator" account for the domain has full control for this file.
~Starting to hash \\Nov-enanas\admins\smstest for package ENA00001  $$<SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER><Tue May 19 11:13:50.742 2009 Eastern Daylight Time><thread=5024 (0x13A0)>

What about the share permissions?

Does the SMS Network Service account have permissions at the NTFS and Share level?

Sorry, I failed to mention that I am using advanced security. I think I may have found the solution.

Advanced security does not use network accounts, correct? It uses local system accounts. I gave permissions to the computer account of the SMS server to access the file, and it seems to work. Is this the correct way for advanced security?

Thanks.
