I am helping a friend set up her small business.
She wants to sync up her laptop w/ her desktop
to update files w/ each other.

Can anyone tell me what is the best software for this?

I believe connecting them via Firewire cable and booting in Transfer Mode (I think that's what it's called) could do the trick. Or you could use the .Mac Sync features, depending on what all files and such you want to keep synced. This probably isn't exactly what you want, but it's all I know of.

MacBook: 2GHz, 2GB RAM, Core Duo; iMac: 2.4GHz, 3GB RAM, 500GB HDD. Both running Leopard; 160GB iPod Classic; and 16GB iPhone 3G, 1st 8GB Gen iPod Touch
