    I want to run a program (itunes) on a computer and access it from another, I guess that would be making one computer a server. Do I need a windows server OS, or some kind of software? where do I start?

    Both Pc's are running windows xp connected through a linksys router.
    Thanks for any help!!

    Yes and no, technically the PC with the iTunes share on it is the server and the PC that connects to it is the client, but you just need a simple home network. You don't need a server OS if that is what you are asking.
