We are moving all of our media off our iMac and onto our new ReadyNAS NV we purchased through Slim Devices' promotion.

How will I create playlists now that Slim Server isn't using iTunes as its source, it is just scanning the music folder?

Creating and Saving a Playlist
You can use the remote control or the web interface to create playlists and
save them for later. Before you create and save a playlist, make sure you
have specified a folder for Squeezebox to use for saving playlists.

To specify a playlists folder:
1. From the web interface, click the Server Settings link.
2. In the Playlists Folder section, enter the path to the folder on your
hard drive that you want Squeezebox to use for saving playlists, and
click Change.

To create a playlist using the web interface:
1. Search or browse through your music library for music you want to
put in the playlist.
2. When you locate a song, album, artist or genre you want to put in
the playlist, click the plus (+) sign next to it. It is added to the current
Now Playing playlist.
3. To change the order of the tracks in the playlist, use the up and down
arrows to move tracks up and down the list.
4. To save the playlist, click the SAVE button at the top of the current
playlist, on the right half of the page. The new playlist should
appear on the left side of the page. Enter the name you want to give
this playlist and click Save. The playlist is saved to the folder you
specified. To find it again, use the Browse Playlists feature.

To create a playlist using the remote control:
1. Search or browse through your music library for music you want to
put in the playlist.

PLAY on the remote. Using the remote keypad, enter the name you
want to give this playlist and press the right arrow.
4. The playlist is saved. To find it again, use Browse Playlists.

Thank you for pointing me to that. I am doing it now and am frustrated that many of the albums I added have been added twice to the playlist so I have to go back and remove track by track. :-(
