Hey i was just wondering whether this is possible.

I have one 160 gb I Mac and a 80 gb Macbook along with one 250 gb external harddrive.

What im wondering is... Is it possible to setup one itunes library on the ext. HD. and be have it plugged into my Imac, but also set it as my Macbook's library as well?

I know about library sharing and such on wireless networks but what im really looking for is to be able to d/l music on my macbook, drop it into my itunes and have it be added to the itunes library in the hardrive, which would also add it to the itunes on the Imac.

It sounds rather complicated when i write it out. But to me it seems realistic right?

any way.... can anyone help me out with this?

In theory it sounds possible. If you set your MB and iMac to access the HDD for the music, I dont see why not. That would be neat to try.

I Love Free Software.
