Need client/server MP3 DB solution - RedHat-->Windows

Please reply with recommendations:

We are running SAMBA SERVER on RedHat 9.0 (home network)

and multiple MS Windows based "clients" access files in:

\\Server\share\mp3 directory


We want a good MP3 file manager that will reside on the RedHat server. The Windows machines need to be able to easily browse to the server directory and use a GUI to play MP3s of their choice.

I don't mind installing additional components on the Linux server, but I can not necessarily install extra apps on the Windows machines. Some of the Windows "clients" have MusicMatch or Windows Media Player, or WinMX or the like...

We don't want to use a web interface, but will do so if there is not a better solution.

Most importantly, we just want to organize all of the MP3s on the file server and allow ubiquitous, application-independent access to the MP3 database...


Thank you in advance for any suggestion you may propose!
