Does this/ would this now work on networked storage now that MySQL is
used ?   The reason I ask is that earlier versions of DK did not allow
the db to be placed on a remote drive.  Has that changed ?

Here is what I am thinking... DK is about as good as anything for her
tagging and rating purposes.  I'll install the images (in their
heirarchy) on the NAS storage device and place the db in the root
picture dir.   

I'll have DK 1.6 installed on my Linux machine, set up to access the db
on the NAS device.   

I'll set her machine up with the Windows version of DK.
