I have reformatted my iMac G3 hard drive and transfered my iTunes library to an external hard drive, using Sqeezebox V1. This configuration was working fine before the reformat. How do I configure the Slimserver to find the iTunes music folder on the external hard drive? Many thanks!

First make sure itunes is looking at the ext hd by going into itunes
preferences>advanced and checking where the itunes music folder is
located. You can change the location of your music here. Your itunes
database file will remain in your home folder>music folder.
Then go into slimserver>server settings>itunes and make sure find
itunes automatically is set to find itunes automatically.
Then do a clear library and rescan and the server should do the rest.
