    On my girlfriend's iBook, I have around 300 mp3's in my iTunes library. She has a seperate login, and I was wondering if I could share my iTunes library so she could access it through her login? I have went through the preferences and have mine shared, and have her preferences set to "Look for shared music", but mine isn't showing up. I know that you can share over a network with 2 seperate Macs, but can you share across logins?

    You would have to place the actual music files in a directory accessable by both users. Such as /music or something.

    it might be easier to create a new user (i.e. music) and just make the directories/files read & write to you and your gf...also handy if you care to set up an ftp or some such ;)
