For playing it off the CD you boot from, right?  I know that's the case for
geexbox, no networking that I was aware of, at least not the last time I
tried it.  It's pretty impressive though, a 7MB image that will boot up and
play music or movies from a CD.  It's also impressive because it will use
the hardware decoding in the mini-itx 800MHz fanless box I have so it can
keep up with decoding even the heaviestweight DVDs.
