I use a Dell Axim x30 high (aka 624 mhz) and it works
great.

Here is what I do:
* open IE and open URL: http://YOURIP:9000/Handheld/
* Open GSPlaer app
http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA032810/ and go to
File/Open URL... Then, type in
http://YOURIP:9000/stream.mp3 . Now you SlimServer
thinks there is another player Squeezebox player which
is really your handheld (go to your computer and see
that you now have two players showing. You control
what is playing with IE and listen to it thru GS
Player. I really like GS Player and it plays internet
radio too.

This is the way I have been doing it. Is there a
better way someone would recommend?

Dan
