Share iTunes library with OS X and Windows via a server

For the love of gawd, please give this frustrated prospective netatalk user (and others like me) the paint-by-numbers on getting it to work. I've had nothing but frustration and want to do exactly what you have done. Much obliged!!

Share iTunes library with OS X and Windows via a server
Authored by: tmpatrick on Apr 26, '07 09:11:46PM

I use an NFS share on my music storage server using Ubuntu. It's not necessary to use netatalk (really bad support, pretty much a dead project), but this alternative does require a bit more configuration on your Mac's end to automount the NFS fileshare (using NetInfo Manager), and occasionally enter "sudo kill -1 `cat /var/run/automount.pid`" in Terminal if your connection drops (as mine does via wifi on occasion). Look here on macosxhints.com for "NFS automount" - that's what I did, and I'm golden.
