Right!

And after 5 hours of hard work! :-) ... is done. It took a while the process of generating the iTune library and copying the songs from one folder to another, via iTunes I mean. Besides tweaking the Linux permissions without exposing too much either.

The Samba share and permissions are working like a charm and I enable the "Copy files to iTunes Media Folder when adding to library" option too ( Thanks Tom)

Next time she buys a book or something from Apple and later sync, everything will reside on the Samba share, not locally.

I will probably post my Samba config file later for additional input or in case someone else is interested also.
