This is exactly what I do. I have a PC running Windoze and iTunes.
I have a linux machine running samba that I've pointed my WinXP
machine running iTunes to (//server/music/) and my SlimServer
is running on that box, the music directory Slim is looking at
is //mnt/music and the iTunes directory is configured for
the same.
