    Hey all

    I have a 2.26 mini and as of today, a 3.06 ATI iMac.

    Can I do the following.. and could some kind person pls decribe how...

    I have wireless internet through the house

    iMac will be upstairs and has a 1TB HDD so all my music will be physically stored there, through iTunes.

    The mini will be downstairs, under the TV. Can I Link the iTunes on the mini, somehow.. to the iTunes library on the iMac upstairs? So what I have on itunes upstairs, I will also have on the mini, downstairs.

    So you're wanting to share the iTunes library from the iMac to your Mac Mini?

    If so...

    1) Open up your iTunes preferences on your iMac. Go to the Sharing tab and make sure that "Share my library" is selected.

    2) Open up your iTunes preferences on your Mac Mini. Go to the Sharing tab and make sure that "Look for shared libraries" is selected.

    Now, your iMac iTunes library will show up on your Mac Mini.

    Or you can just by a portable hard drive and get the songs from your Mini and bring them to the iMac.

    Just a suggestion...
