    I'm new to mac's so please bear with me.

    My wife and I just got this 27" iMac and we're migrating all of our files over from the Windows PC to this one.

    My wife and I are using this one iMac and I've created 2 user accounts for her and myself. I'm moving my 130gb's of mp3's to this iMac but I'd like to know where I should physically put them so that we can both fire up iTunes and see/hear the music, without having to take up double the space by putting them on my user account side and again on her user account side.

    I hope this makes sense and I'm waiting to hear from someone before I move the music onto the iMac.

    Thanks!!!

    What I've done in the past is put the Music folder outside of /Users, and then making an alias to that location in all users home folders. iTunes knows you've moved it, but doesn't really care.
