Works just fine here....

both when moving the whole iTunes wolder as well as only the iTunes library.

Have not verified with iTunes 5, though.

Hmm. What, exactly, did you share?
It's easy enough to move the "iTunes Music" folder (the one that contains the mp3 files) to /Users/Shared and use chmod to change the regular old Unix modes. The, each user, in iTunes, chooses the new location in iTunes...Preferences...Advanced .

So now users can play and add music to that folder. Great.

The problem is that if User A adds music, it shows up in his iTunes but not in User B -- the Library (not the folder) needs to be updated. User B would need to locate the new music in Finder and import it again into iTunes.

The real trick is to share the files "iTunes Library" and "iTunes Music Library.xml"
