    Samba. I shared my mp3's through Samba from my Linux machine and whenever I had to do something on my mom's computer, I'd open Winamp and open them in network neighborhood.

    Or if all you do is listen to a random playlist, setup a streaming server like icecast/shout.

    Well Samba usually authenticate based on windows login (or Linux). So what you wanna do is make each home directory have access. What I did for a file warehouse is the following.

    1) Made a group called Schottysbuddies and added all current users (everyone could have read and write access)
    2) Symlinked the dir to each home dir.
    3) Tested it out

    It worked out well. You must remember that the group permission will screw alot up (well, it did for me)

    I used samba for all Linux to Linux networking. All (at the time) were RedHat 7.1
