I have recently purchased a network hard drive that provides the "iTunes Server" functionality.(Western Digital My Book World Edition)

I have moved all my music across into the "Shared Music" folder and as promised I see under "Shared" in iTunes the icon "MyBookWorld".  And through that link I can see all my music etc..  This is true with all computers at home.

However, I don't simply want to share music, I want to share Applications, Playlists, Podcasts etc..  There is only myself and my wife at home and it will be a hassle to have each computer with its own playlist etc..

So - is the solution not to use iTunes Server functionality and instead simply put all the music on the external drive etc.  What should be the "iTunes Media Folder Location"??

Also.... one thing that I am looking to do in future is setup my hifi to play music from the iTunes libary - how will this affect the setup of using or not using iTunes Server??
