I decided to do some experimenting a couple weeks back with moving and keeping my library on an external hard drive.

There are obvious initial disadvantages to this, but after some tinkering and getting comfortable with i Tunes' baked-in library management genius, this can be a pretty useful setup for those who, like me, are cramped for space but aren't willing to trash those albums you're too embarrassed use in a Party Shuffle playlist.

Getting back on topic: read on for a walkthrough (from a very mobile notebook user) of how to move your i Tunes library to an external hard drive.
