I haven't set it up in a while, but I've used mod_mp3 in the past and
it worked very well.
I've also run daapd to feed music via DAAP. Add in a multicast
DNS server and you can serve music automatically to Amarok
and other music programs. DAAP can work over the net, but
by default, multicast DNS only announces itself on a local network, so that
would solve the problem of keeping it local. I would highly recommend
going that route if you can.
