I have been trying this for a while, as I have an old linux box which is fine for internet/chat/music, except I don't want to have to move all of my music over to play it. I thought, of Itunes music sharing will work fine for this, but as of iTunes 7, their daap (music sharing) no longer works with any clients but another iTunes 7. For a workaround, get tangerine (http://www.snorp.net/log/tangerine) for the server instead, and then select find music in: iTunes. Even if you have iTunes 7, this server will play fine with linux. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

So far rythmbox and banshee both work as clients, I wouldn't expect any problems with any other daap-enabled clients either.
