It would be nice but it's not required. None of my Windows boxes will
play ogg files today anyway.

I don't know how to get NFS working but I'm making a little headway:

1) Added /MusicLib (ro) to the /etc/exports file and started NFS.
nfs-stat shows the export:

[root@dragonfly etc]# nfs-export --list
Directory       Permissions             Hosts
/MusicLib               ro
[root@dragonfly etc]#

2) Tried to mount it on the client side but it didn't work:

[root@Godzilla root]# mount -t nfs dragonfly:/MusicLib /home/mark/nfsMusic/
mount to NFS server 'dragonfly' failed: server is down.
[root@Godzilla root]#

Dragonfly (the server) has iptables running. Do I need to open ports
like for Samba? What numbers? TCP only or UDP also?
