I am going to buy a cheap like 200mhz thinkpad off fo ebay and get a infared remote for it and some speakers an basically haev a mp3 server for my living room. I will also be interfacing ti with my xbox but anyways. I buy music off of itunes and I was just going to throw a linux distrubtion on there and go from there. Problem is I dont know of an app for linux that plays .aac and at that drm acc's.

Edit: oh yeah i think ill put fedora core 3 on there. and it will be hooked up to the network and get the itunes music through that probably so any solutions for that?

You can't play drm'd music from iTunes on Linux. Unless, of course, you burn them to a cd and then rip them back to your Linux box. You can play aac files on Linux. Just install faad2 and the faad2-xmms plugins for the xmms music player and you'll be all set.

Also, mplayer will play aac if you have the w32 codecs installed.
