Somebody please help.

I can not for the life of me manage to share files between the various users on my computer (currently just my girlfriend and I). I would particularly like to share my iTunes library with her and my iPhoto library.

I put the goods in the public drop folder and she can not see them. I put them in the sharing folder and she can either not see them or not open them because she does not have suffience permissions even thought I ctrl clicked the folder and gave her read and write permission.

Is there some way to just copy the pictures and music as an alias so as not to duplicate all the files and use up lots of my storage needlessly?

What the **** is going on!

AArrrrrrrrgggggggg!
