I'm curious why you didn't try to use the default music player with Ubuntu,  
called Rhythmbox? It can play music stored on an external file server  
without any problems.

I've used Rhythmbox before and never really liked it. I can't really say  
what I didn't like about it, it always felt too heavyweight (much like  
Exaile did as well). For music playing I'm very much of the school of old  
school Winamp/XMMS. I don't need a lot of fancy album art, or  
autoscrobbling last fm stuff. Give me a playlist and minimize to the tray,  
and I'm good.

I will take a look at Rhytmbox though next install, which will probably be  
tonight or tommorow. I like Windows 7 beta, they have some cool things in  
it, but I need to get some work done, and I need my tools. If you would  
like me to test anything specific this install in regards to music playing,  
let me know and I will give it a go.
