    hey all,

    so i've finally reigned in my iPod / iTunes, and tamed the beast that was my insurmountable CD collection. :p

    from my bedroom PC, i wanna be able to use the AirPort to send my music to the downstairs stereo, thus the AirPort idea.

    but is it easy to setup the AirPort w/ my mostly windows running wireless router? how do i setup the security access, so the AirPort can be a part of my secured wireless network?

    and wassup, w/ Airtunes? is it a standalone program, or something worked into iTunes?

    also, kinda silly, but can i use the ethernet jack on the AirPort and just run that into the router, then my stereo?

    and has anyone tried the remote controls that are offered for the AirPort / AirTunes?

    so, anyone wanna give me the low down? worth it?

    The last time I was home I think my dad had something like 2 running. AirTunes does not exist. You plug a 1/8th inch cable out from the Airport express into your stereo Aux in jack. I don't see why you couldn't use the network, I pick up various networks at school and it seems to be cool. the express is really just an expensive range extender with some groovy options. I feel like that's all i can adequetly/knowledgably answer.
