Accessing Home MP3s via WiFi?

I'm really curious as I'm converting my music to MP3s..

It's really easy to convert all your CDs, and you can store a lot with a 300gig drive. There are even network drives popping up that allow access to the files without turning on your PC.

So what about listening to all that content?
* For home stereo, WiFi media players seem fairly expensive and require a music server to be running on a PC.
* For home PDA WiFi access, you still need a music server, I think.
* For remote internet access to your music, do you need to do the whole "remote control of your pc" thing, or is there an easier (and secure) way to do it?

Do you know the Airport Express? It allows you to stream MP3s to a stereo either by stereo jacks or by digital toslink cable. All you need is to have iTunes installed on your PC/MAC.

* For home PDA WiFi access, you still need a music server, I think.
In my case, I can use the built-in Wifi of the Axim x50v to directly access the drives of my PC. This way I can browse to the directories containing MP3s and directly play them on the PDA using a PDA MP3 client, without music server.

* For remote internet access to your music, do you need to do the whole "remote control of your pc" thing, or is there an easier (and secure) way to do it?
Good question. What OS are you running? I am not 100% sure how you contral your music remotely via Internet and yet keep safe from hackers and virii.

I'm running WinXP SP2.
I'll take a look at the iTunes/Airport Express combo, but I thought that was something that required a hack to use with a normal mp3 collection.

That's pretty neat about the PDA Wifi using the files directly. What kind of battery life do you get that way?
