I'm not quite sure what you mean by point your xml directory at a linux
box to get iTunes support.

I copy my iTunes directory to the Linux server. Get and build faad2 for
Linux to decode the music. Install slimserver on linux. edit
slimserver-convert.conf to support faad2 (check the archives). Then
slimserver will use the iTunes playlists/data and play unprotected
