I have tried to set this up at home. Setting it up takes some time and
effort as it deals with some mySQL and PHP stuff, but I did get it up
and running. So far though, it doesn't support connecting from a
Newton. Adam is aware of the problem with Newtons, but I don't know if
it's been addressed yet. I haven't checked the Soybo site in a bit,
but previously it didn't look like much was being done with it.

I have been using newtVNC to control my computer's iTunes. . .except
lately when I connect via VNC, the desktop drops its audio out to the
stereo through a Griffin iMic, so it doesn't really help me now!
