Well,

You can reboot the slimp3 or squeezebox and then statically address it and
point it to which server you want to use, and just do this each time you
want to "browse" other computer collections.

Or you can simply set up drive shares from your Linux machine onto the other
boxes and maybe set up a cron entry to rescan all the shares every night so
that you are getting to see all the up to date music.

The slimp3 isn't really designed to connect to a variety of computers
running the slimserver.

I have multiple computers - multiple users and multiple MP3 collections, so
I need a way to browse through all computers on the network at the same
time.

I have 3 platforms MacOSX, Win2k, and a Linux(FreeBSD?) box. So I'm not sure
about mapping, unless I use the PC...

What exactly do you mean by running two computers to one slimp3? An easier
way to get music from both machines to the slimp3 would be to simply run
slimserver on ONE PC and then map the music share from the 2nd PC onto the
first one.

Tell us what it is you want to accomplish and I'm sure we can figure
something out.

I just got my slimp3 player! I hunted around for a cooler-looking old
version.....

My questions:

1. Can I have multiple computers running slimserver and search through both
computers playlists simultameously? The slimp3 only sees one computer at a
time as far as I can tell.

2. Is there any easy way to search the archive so I don't ask questions that
have already been answered?

3. What are these "nightlies" I keep reading about?

Thanks a bunch!
Christopher
