macs, pcs, and itunes....streaming?

Here's the deal. I have a PC running windows with some 90 gigs of music on it. I'd like to be able to stream that music to my laptop throughout my house. Is this possible without buying air tunes or something else? Both machines would be running Itunes, though the laptop is running OS X tiger.

if both computers are on the same network, you can share your library. IIRC, this option is in preferences.

I'll try that. For some reason I thought it would be reserved for use with airtunes or something.

You'll basically be accessing your iTunes library on your PC from your laptop. It shows up as a shared library, but you can browse, play music, etc. remotely.

What Airtunes does is sends the signal to a device that can output a signal to your stereo. It's still controlled via your PC.
