Thanks for the replies. A symlink in the digiKam directory did the trick.
I had already created a symlink in my home directory to the old photos
for browsing (I had put the photos on a different partition), but never
thought of creating one in the digiKam directory! I'm still getting used
to the power of the Linux command line :D

Thanks again.
