Then start the music server by running 'mpd mpd.conf', you'll need to create an mpd.conf, there's an example mpd.conf that you can copy in doc/mpdconf.example, just change the music_directory location to point to the appropriate place for your music and other audio files.
Once it's running the client machines can connect using a vast number of mpd clients, eg
You just specify the ip address of the mpd server in the sonata client
the default port is 6600, you will have to open this on the firewall using system-config-firewall
