I would like to run Plex on ClearOS, and have it use directories on my (separate) Linux (Mint) workstation.
I'm used to mapping drives with Windows, but have not done it for two Linux machines

I've looked into FlexShares, but it seems to be focused on Windows . . .

    Flexshare is for using ClearOS as a file server, not for consuming a file server. You will need to use command line to mount the Mint box in some manner. If you have shared the folders in Mint via Samba, then you can use the cifs protocol to create a mounted drive.

    Create a mountpoint like /store/mintdata:

    mkdir -p /store/mintdata

    And then, depending on the protocol you use on Mint (NFS/CIFS/Other) you can mount the data there. Further you can bind mount that data into other structures for 're-sharing' like a flexshare that you set up.
