Playing music over the network


Is there a way (in XMMS or juk) to play music that is stored on another PC of the home network? I won't even try if this is not possible...

To Linux it doesn't make a difference, if you can
mount it xmms can play it. If it's another Linux
machine use nfs, if it's a windows box, use samba.


Cheers,

Ah, thought so. I traditionally have troubles with configuring Samba though...in Suse 9.1 there's this nice little network neighborhood like icon so browsing windows machines is no problem. I have never ever been able to make the windows machines browse MINE though...even though it's Win2K, so it should be fairly easy.
