Hi Ken

Welcome to the Squeezebox. I'm also on XP and having a few problems. I'm
using Service Pack 2, Release Candidate 2 and this has some problems.

Try re-installing the software and choose to allow it to run at start-up,
this runs slim.exe as a Windows XP Service (control panel/admin
tools/service will show it running). This allows you to use it without the
slimserver.exe front end.

If you're using XP SP2 RC2, then your machine may crash when you run
slimserver.exe - this seems to be a known problem but reverting back to XP
SP1 is a major hassle.

No idea about the Japanese option though.
