i think
you just need to connect both to a router and set the music folder to share folder properties>>>sharing
 
...i think
Written in very small characters one word, which could be deciphered, but it was hard to tell whether it should be read as independent or interdependent

what you need to do is hook it up to your breaker box 220 plug and itll do it automatically. lol jk.....to make it simple you should just burn all ur music to CD's and then rip the music using I-tunes.

You are connected to each other via router, hub, direct cable correct?
Start > All Programs > Acessories >Communications > Network Setup Wizard
It will then step by step ask you what you want to do, and make sure you choose the one that allows you to share files. Then in you Network Places folder you will see that computer's shared folder. From there, it's just a drag and drop back and forth however you wish.

But remember if he has a firewall it might not allow the other computers to access that computer with a firewall unless he configures it.

Oh yes. At a LAN party we were trying to exchange patches to games so we all were the same version. Firewalls were a pain in the ass.
