Interesting. I'm currently streaming

Interesting. I'm currently streaming my music to an old 200MHz pentium system (all fans removed and root on NFS) that runs esd. Maybe not as cool but definitely cheaper than 600 dollars ;-)

Anyways, I'd like to use voip software in this setup, how should I transport microphone traffic back to the server from this old pentium system? ESD only does playback and I can't run the voip software locally since 200MHz just isn't enough for ekiga.
