I'm a new convert here - so bear with me!...

I've put all of my TV series from my old windows XP machine into my 'Movies' folder - my Wife also has an admin account on our iMac and wondered what the best way of sharing this would be?.. am I right in thinking that I just update her profile as a user to the folder with read/write privileges and create an 'alias' for her?

also - I have quite a large iTunes library which I imported into my 'Music' folder.. will this be accessible to her or will I need to create an 'alias' or is there another/better way of doing this?

sorry for the n00b questions!! LOL!!

Try this method.

Sharing iTunes between users - Mac Guides

(and I have to look it up, because I've never done it either)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
