Thanks for the advice - It all works wonderfully.

The different Ogg playing Java Applets still fail when I move the
clients from one mount to another, or using when using ezstream the song
in the playlist changes.. Have decided to leave the Applets aside for
the moment, and just use Winamp or XMMS..

Cheers and thanks again for you input.
