I have a number questions regarding this:

1 - Should I run the new 6.0 Slimserver on the Squeezebox?

2 - I have tried it and pretty much lockup if I happen to hit the Alarm
under Player Settings

3 - I can not find the crossfade option. Is crossfading a hardware feature
of Squeezebox2 or the new Slimserver 6.0 or a combination? Site says look
in Player Settings and Web Interface but I do not see these options.

Opinions are mixed on this. If you're a non-technical user, and you can
live with the existing bugs in 5.4.1 that are already fixed in 6.0.1,
you might want to wait a bit for things to stabilize on the version 6
branch.

If you're technically minded, and don't mind the fast pace of change in
the version 6 branch, upgrading and reporting bugs as you find them is
probably appreciated.

You should file a bug with more details.

That's an SB2 hardware feature, so you'll only find it in the player
settings for an SB2 client.
