Hoping someone can shed some light here....

I am new to Mac and have just imported ALL my music into a new Library under my account, however my wife also has an IPOD and I want to use the same iTunes library between both accounts on the same system.

How can I do this?

No, read the post.

2 accounts on the SAME system (OSX).

I was trying to do something similar and found this like which seems to have worked:

Only problem is now that you can't have both users accessing the iTunes library at the same time as it's locked by whoever's got it open first.

anyone know if you can get round that
