I've got a Powerbook G4 and
I'm getting a MacBook
will set up Bonjour networking on both to see each other

Question is: I was of the understanding that FrontRow will use Bonjour networking to look for movies/music/etc. on all Macs it finds using Bonjour networking - not just on the Mac that the FrontRow is running on.

Is this true?

That means if I have movies on my Powerbook G4 will the MacBook's Front Row see them and stream them over the wifi network?

Powerbook 17" G4 1.5Ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.7), 2Gb RAM, nearly 2.5Gb storage and counting :)

    Yes, Front Row will see Movies/Music and Photos that are shared on your Powerbook G4 if it has Bonjour sharing turned on in iTunes and iPhoto. This is only for content that is managed by iTunes and/or iPhoto.
