This is precisely what I do and have been doing for about 4 years (since I 
wired my house for Cat 5.) I have a file-server in the cupboard under the 
stairs and use NFS to serve my entire (completely legal) collection of 300 CDs 
  ripped onto MP3 to several diskless devices scattered around the house. 
Playing MP3s was a primary reason to wire the house and to get into diskless 
Linux devices. One of the main uses of my XBox is to play MP3s served up from 
the NFS server under the stairs (it's not diskless, though).
