Okay, hopefully this isn't an "RTFM" type question. If it is, please forgive me. I'm a tad bit confused on the matter of playlists.

I see where Slimserver gives you an option of using iTunes to control your playlists. What I want, however, isn't exactly this. Rather, I want to import existing playlists that have been created by iTunes into the format that Slimserver understands, i.e., the format that resembles,

#CURTRACK 0
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF

The playlist format in iTunes seems to be in XML format.

Question: if I _were_ to click the box that gives control of playlists to iTunes, wouldn't that mean I'd have to use iTunes on my client systems to play a playlist? This wouldn't work on a linux-based system since iTunes hasn't been port to linux. Or, perhaps I'm misinterpreting this.

Thanks in advance for any light y'all can shed on this.
