Synchronizing two folders

Hello, I have two WinXP Home Pcs so that might limit answers to my question:

Anyway on these two computers I have a 'Music Library' with GB's of music and was wondering if there is anyway the two folders could be synchronized. e.g.

On PC 1 I put an MP3 into my 'Music Library'. On PC 2, that MP3 has been automatically copied from PC 1, when avaiable and put into the 'Music Library' on PC 2, and vice versa.

It would be easier if there was only one networked Music Library so that all PCs could access but then at some stage I would only want one PC turned on if I'm not using the PC that has the Library, if you know what I mean. Both PCs have large HD's so I can have two full sets of the Music Library

So what can I do?

Preferably something within Windows and not third-party.

Thanks
