Thanks for all the replies on my 2 posts. I get the threads by digest so apologies for not being able to post earlier.
I shall have a go at the FLAC route over the weekend and see if my system can cope with streaming it (over wireless).
People seem to share my concerns over the memory of the Lacie NAS, I do not know whether it is upgradable - this would make a nice alternative to yet another computer (even if "stripped" down) as it was a 1U high virtually noiseless standalone system. That was what attracted me (and to be honest I am a little daunted by the thought of linux!!)

BTW what exactly is this CVS that everyone keeps mentioning??!!!

Concurrent Versioning System
it tracks changes over time, and you can check out up-to-the-second updates for
your slimserver (if you use the slimserver.pl version, and not slim.exe for
windows).

for more info:
CVS: www.gnu.org/software/cvs/

Slimserver CVS access: http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_resources.html
(scroll to the bottom)

I was just going to reply that if you have to ask you don't want
to fool around with it. ;-)
