My wife and I use the same laptop. I have a large Itunes library (too large to want to duplicate under a different log-in). I want to give her access to the music under her log-in and I cant figure out how to do it.

I too am having a problem. I'm able to configure my Mac (and PC) to do sharing, by going to iTunes >preferences> sharing and checking the box that says "Share my library on my local network." Now what do I do? Once I've told machines to Look for share libraries and to share their libraries, does the music library automatically populate with the content that's on the other machine, or do I have to specifically tell iTunes to seek out that content?
QUOTE Thanks
