load the slimserver web interface in your browser:
http://slimserverIP:9000/

the connected winamp client will be loaded, you can then add songs and start
playback from the web interface. Winamp itself cannot control slimserver; it
simply plays the stream coming from it.

Then, go to your web browser interface. You will see a dropdown box
that lets you select the IP address of the target device.
Select the IP address of the PC running Winamp.

From then on, the web interface to SlimServer will control
what is sent to WinAmp.

At least until you reboot either computer, etc.
