I have 3 PCs. ! on 10.10 the other two on 10.04. I want to centralise our music into one Terabyte external drive that we can all access via our wireless router. How do I start going about this please.

Eventually I would like to put my DVDs on this drive and access them from my TV.....but the audio will do for now.

You can share the drive using NFS. For a howto, have a look here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo).

Thanks...that seems rather complicated...but, it is certainly one way of achieving the goal.
