is it possible to run itunes in a VM (win7 XP Mode) and it have direct access to the Music folder on my server?

I dont want to install Itunes on my desktop as I hate it with a passion but for some reason I cannot get the Girlfriends Ipod nano 5th Gen to sync properly with Media Monkey!

I've done just that, not that I have any use for any iWhatsits - I just wanted to get Apple's album artwork, which is mostly rather nice, without inflicting iTunes on my host system.

Yes, it does work - I use VMware Workstation, but no reason to suppose it won't work equally well in Win7 XP mode.

edit: be careful though to make sure iTunes isn't set up to auto-arrange your music folders - disable this before pointing it at your music library, or it could all get rather ugly...
