Below are details of the files and components of LiMP, which will be of particular interest to those who wish to modify Linux Multimedia Player to meet their own needs (see the “Optimizing LiMP” section).
NOTE: Make sure that the files and folders “grldr”, “\grub”, \grub\“menu.lst” , “\limp” , \limp\“limp.img” and \limp\“mpl_ker” are in small case.

xmms – Contains:
skins – Folder for skins, that will be used by xmms insideLiMP. Winamp skins are also supported. Just copy your winamp skins to this folder. To make your favorite skin to be loaded automatically, add “default” as the starting name to the preferred skin file. Make sure only one file has default as its starting name.
In LINUX all FILES' / FOLDERS' names are CASE SENSITIVE. So be careful when replacing the FILE / FOLDER Names.
