Ok so here's a pretty basic question. Do I need a dedicated box for SlimServer? My primary intent is to stream internet radio.

I'm think I can install the server software on a Vista laptop used primarily for email and browsing.

Thanks

No need for a dedicated server - most people run SlimServer on a general machine which also does duty for surfing, mail, etc. Also, if you are wanting to stream internet radio rather than play stored music files, then you don't need a server at all. Connect the SB to Squeezenetwork and you can stream radio stations directly from the internet.

If your music is in MP3 you can set up an account with MP3Tunes and have them all there. Then there is no need to have a PC running slimserver locally at all.
