I believe Rythmbox will share libraries. It certainly will show
libraries shared on the LAN.
iTunes on the XP machines will share their libraries.
You might also want to consider mt-daapd to share out libraries on the
That way they don't have to be signed in to be sharing their music,
and can use the player of their choice.
I ran a central server with mt-daapd on it here in the office for a
couple of years until I ran out of disc space for it, and was very
happy with it.
