As you noticed, you can't use a path in the form of //server/folder, Linux just gets rid of the extra slash in front.
You need to "mount" your smb folder on a path on your Linux machine. Research the "mount" and/or "smbmount" commands.

Subject: [Jython-users] Network folder in Python.path in registry (Linux)
I have just installed Jython on Linux, and I am trying to configure my path to my source, which is a networked repository, e.g.: smb://server/folder
So I have added the line
python.path = //server/folder
to my registry file, but I can't import any of my files, and if I print sys.path I get:
['', '/home/user/jython/Lib', '/server/folder', '__classpath__']
(I manage this fine in windows by mapping to a letter).
Any ideas for me?
