The best way would be to use the SMS/'Simple Media System'-Mediaplayer.

As of yet this is not possible, as far as I know.
There are only 2 standalone-mediaplayers for PS2 available for PS2, supporting the SMB-Protocoll. These beeing SMS and Argon.
I could organise that no problem at all. I'm curious how you get it to network boot, must need a usb drive or dvd to tell it where to boot from, but thats another question I guess. Considering it runs from a SMB share, its not too much of a stretch to assume it could access media from another SMB share? I cant see any mention of UPnP support though?
Argon is based on SMS (but afaik an older version).
No, you don't need that. That's overcompicated.

: there seems to be hundreds of video's on youtube of people booting up and playing an mp3 from a USB drive.. but not much else. I assume you -would- be able to play media from an SMB share. But considering I'm only really looking for media support, I dont need a full linux O/S - and the interface would look a little clunky as far as media center's go.
Dude,... SMB is the so-called 'Server-Message-Block'-Protocoll and must be supported by the software, where you want to use it at.
: never had one before. But I reckon I could install one if I had to. Any good ones for the slim with UPnP or SMB support?
Any other options?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Where does a modchip even come into play here, except starting the ELF/Software? No-where!
In 90% of all cases, you wouldn't even need a modchip, to start the media-player or all those other homebrew-apps.
