I am hoping for some assistance

I have an administrators account and 4 standard user accounts on an iMac

All of my music is located in the Administrators account under the iTunes default location. My hope was to move it to a 'shared' location that all 4 standard users would be able to access.

I moved the folder to the Admin Shared folder and gave permissions to all 4 standard users to access - but for the life of me when I login to the standard user accounts I only see the default Dropbox in the shared folder

Any input anyone has to his or a better solution is much appreciated

Thanks

a) five people on one Mac is the real problem there.
b) NAS?
c) Home sharing?
