I did not mention that I am running Slimserver NOT as a service yet -
therefore Bills explanation seems to make sense.

On WinXP (and latest 6.0 nightly), task manager shows slim.exe whenever the
server software is running. When I start the SlimServer interface from the
desktop icon, slimserver.exe is added to the list.
Slimserver.exe looks like some kind of wrapper around Internet Explorer.
