Well, did a little more digging, and it turns out it was an issue with my SMB (Samba) configuration. All of my music files were getting set with the attributes "System" and "Hidden." Since I have Explorer show hidden files, I could see them, but iTunes could not import them. Once I updated Samba, the import started working. Thanks!
Hopefully somebody can help with my similair problem. I have all my music in mp3 format on my linux server, which runs glftpd + scripts that catalogue the mp3 upon upload into genres/year/artist to make for easier finding of songs. I then use samba to access the shares within the glftpd directory structure, e.g.; /glftpd/site/mp3/albums.. I have added this share into windows as a mapped drive (M:\). The problem is this, whilst I can add the folder/drive into iTunes, i cant manually update the album art. iTunes does find some are for the albums, but I have a different source which I want to use to update the art. I also noticed that its not just the art I cant edit, its the track info. This i expected becuase the tracks reside on a network share which glftpd has probably locked permissions on, however the album art i cant understand becuase the library resides on my windows pc.
Any ideas ?

If you want to edit a track's artwork, it's like editing track info - the permissions are locked.
The iTunes downloaded art is in separate folders, not the ID3 tags in the actual mp3 files.
on XP the path is
C:\Documents and Settings\ username \My Documents\My Music\iTunes\Album Artwork
yo after reading this post i went back to screwing with this problem and found something, correpted files... i have this music database mgr.that found bad headers in my mp3 files it has a file repairer ran it and wala it worked.... this is going to sound cornie but, i d-loaded (err) purchesed all of areosmith disks and itunes only imported 4 of them then i fixed some bad files and i'm back in the saddle again!!!!!! i no i no
