I have a problem (on useless XP), that if i click the 'Enable this internet connection to be shared by other computers on the network', it shuts Out the Squeezebox, which is no longer seen by the Slim Server

Any thoughts - it might be a problem with my XP setup of a LAN wired Buffalo Broadband Wireless Router which is seen by the Squeezebox (& other wireless 98/2000 machines but not always by the XP system itself). The Squeezebox picks up the Music ok from the XP system, but not if the Interent connection on the XP base is shared. Then it stops.

If you have a wireless broadband router, why are you trying to enable
Internet Connection Sharing in XP, which causes XP to act as your
Residential Gateway?

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your topology -- how many network segments
do you have, and which machines are connected to which segments?
