Having a blast with my new mini! Got a question - Does anyone know how to get videos to show up in Front Row that are on an external Firewire drive?

From what I have seen only vids in your main Video folder show up.

You can create an Alias of the folder you keep your movies in on the external drive, and drag it to the mini's movies folder. They will show up in Front Row when the drive is mounted.

Thanks for the tip! I was wondering how to do this myself.
