    Post Music Player Distro?


    Hi, I'm new here, and fairly new to Linux. I was just wondering if anyone knows of a distro designed just to play music. I have a PC hooked up to my stereo system right now that has Ubuntu, and am using VNC to remote to it and play the music from it.
    I would like a small distro that has network capabilities, can play mp3's, and play and rip CD's, and also has an HTML interface so I can pick the songs to play from an internet browser.
    Basically I guess it would be a Linux Jukebox type distro.

    Check out Slackware or Debian.

    There is a distro called GeeBoxX designed specifically for this use.
