	nEat that these guys have a wiki page!  it just makes learning
	hte fine-grain details so much easier.  I was just out downing a
	couple cups of coffee and did install the *xmms2* stuff on my 
	to-be music server.  I come back, read your mail, and now am
	browsing the xmms2 wiki pages.  It'll take a couple hours to get
	the configuration done, but then, hey, i'm home free and clear:_)

	thankee,
