    If you leave your home computer on, then ssh into your box, using

    ssh -l your_username xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    where the x's are your home computer's IP address. Then just run xmms or whatever program remotely.

    edit: oh yeah, you'll have to configure your box to allow ssh'ing, but I don't know how to do that (I know how to prevent it), so that's a question for somebody else.

    You will need some Juke box software. I haven't looked too deep into it but I think Helix from Real Player will do the trick.

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
