Sorry, Ron, not to clarify.
I’ve copied and pasted all of my songs onto a drive attached to the Slug and going from there. I know so little about LINUX that mapping symlinks is waaaay beyond me. And I’m not really interested in that anyway.

What I am trying to do is get my music from my desktop down onto a lower powered, always-on server and then streaming through the house with the Roku serving as the front end. It’s easy enough to use that the wifey can feel comfortable with it.

I’d like to control detail of the music library with iTunes. I’ve changed my iTunes around to use the library saved on the Slug. So I’m going on faith that as I add new songs, create and change playlists, etc. etc. that mt-daapd will pick it all up and roll it down to the Roku.

If that’s how it all ends up working out, then I will have successfully “digitized” all of my family’s music and implemented a solution that everyone can feel comfortable with. For less than $400. Joy!
