My wife's phone is already linked to the admin user account on my imac.

 

I have created another account to use for linking my own iphone 4 to.

 

I have tried the directions I have found so far for making the folder of our current music available to the new account: I moved the itunes media folder to the public folder, and went to the advanced setting in itunes in both the original account and in the new account, and pointed itunes to the newly located folder - music only shows in the original account.  Going to itunes with the new account doesn't let me see any of our existing music.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
