RJB's Digital Media Center is a music player.
RJB's Digital Music Center is designed to run on dedicated hardware. Because of this. It running as root. Very dangerous. Other than grabbing the X display and calling stop and halt scripts. It should be able to run as a non-root user. I will look into this on future releases.

Would be a good choice. The install script will ask and expect this path to exist. It will create a symbolic link to it. Also create symbolic link inside to for Cdrom to /mnt/cdrom
(7) As root UnZip/Tar the DMC release in /usr/local
tar zxvf dmc-releaseV2.0.tgz.tgz
(8) If your System is a HP DEC then you need to copy from the original HP disk the binary decvfdcmd.
