    Hi,

    I'll be getting a MBP soon (waiting on that update!) and I currently have a Dell with iTunes installed. Of course I'll have to move all of my iTunes library over to my new Mac, which will have Windows installed on it. I was wondering: if I choose to move all of my library to the Windows HD partition, can Front Row still access it? Or does my library have to be on the Mac OS partition?

    Thanks.

    What is that, and is it pretty easy to set up?

    Music sharing doesn't work between two partitions, just two computers on the same network.

    Oh, ok thanks. I suppose I'll load it on the Mac OS side...

    Sorry I thought you were keeping the music on the Dell, if you want it on both put it on the Mac side and buy MacDrive.

    Since OS X can read the Windows NTFS partition, you could keep the iTunes files on the Windows side and just have iTunes read them from there...
