    I think you should be able to do this with a combination of MPD and icecast.

    That would depend on how you are setup. I have a drive at home, on my linux box, that I share out (NFS/Samba) the has all my music on. I just map the drive and play the music. Simple and easy to do.

    Edit your export file in /etc and place your directory that you want to allow to be mounted by other linux systems like so;

    Code:
    /music                     192.168.3.0/24(ro)
    First is the directory then who is allowed to mount it ad what type of access

    Then edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and towards the bottom add the directory you want windows to be allowed to mount like so;

    Code:
    [music]
            comment = Music Share
            path = /music
    Or you could use the GUI utility to make these changes to Samba under:

    System Steeings -> Server Settings.

    There you can also add users who will be accessing the Samba share.
    Don't forget to add the users for samba else they won't be able to mount the share.

    Google is your friend. You should be able to find plenty on sharing both for NFS and Samba.
    Don't forget to restart the services once you have made changes to them with;

    service <service> restart

    Here are some links for you:

    samba howto - Google Search
    nfs howto - Google Search
