Central storage and remote control of music on a network?

I need a program! Anyone have a suggestion? I am using iTunes and it aint workin' for what I need...

What I want is to have all my music on one computer located on my local network (all XP machines)

But I want to be able to play those songs from any PC using a program.

And I want to be able to add songs to that library from any PC.

So that if I get a new song on one remote PC, that song is added to the main library and seen by all other PC's on the network.

iTunes shared libraries is almost what I need but not quite. If I add songs at remote computers I can make the song be stored on the Main PC itunes folder but it wont show up in the master library.

Keep your library organized using a file system.

Share the folder using standard Windows networking.

Use something like Winamp to play your files.

That's what people did before iTunes and that's what I do now I still find it easier.
