    One of my friends is getting an iPod, I want to know if we could have two individual iTunes libraries for each of our iPods on the same computer. For example have one iTunes library named iPod 1, and the other iTunes library named iPod 2. Is there anyway to do this?

    Make two different users. That'll sort that for you.

    2 iTunes

    If I have 2 Users does this mean that the second user can't hear the first user music? The iTunes are totaly different for each of them?... If this is true, then how does the second user will hear music on the computer, does he has to copy "again" all the songs?

    I im agine you just have to point to the same folder on the hard drive and designate that as the iTunes Music folder.

    2 users on one computer

    Is there a way to protect that folder to the second user?, a way that the second user will not "steal" my music.

    Only allow them "read only" access to the files.. that should work

    "read only" still allows duplication. just not modification or execution.

    basically, tho there may be some workarounds that can get complicated, there's no easy way to do what you're asking. keeping two libraries separate but together isn't an easy task.
