What's a good solution to wirelessly play MP3s on my stereo though my mix-and-match collection of technology?

I currently use a three year old 1GHz Titanium Powerbook with a 40 Gig hard drive that's fairly full. I connect to the net in my home wirelessly through my wife's Belkin wireless router she uses for her business, which is PC based.
I plan to purchase a 200 Gig external hard drive to rip and store my collection of 300+ CDs. I then want to connect my laptop to it and somehow be able to stream music wirelessly to our stereo in the other room.
I've read about Apple's Airport with AirTunes, and can see how the two work together, but I don't need another wireless router - and I need to be able to do all this without disturbing my wife's business or creating PC/Mac compatability issues.
Is there a gadget I can get similar to AirTunes that can make this work with the wireless router we already have? I realize I could just hook my laptop and external hard drive directly to my stereo, but I want to keep my computer and drive in our home office. Cost isn't really the issue. I just want to make this happen without having to disturb the wireless setup we already have.
Thanks in advance for any insights or solutions.
