Ok, I now have 3 Macs, but I only really use 2 of them these days (iMac DVSE & iBook 466). But I would like to know what I need to do to sync files between them.. Obviously they are not permanently connected together, so I preferably would like a way to update files automatically between the 2 computers when I connect them together, either by Ethernet or FireWire (I preffer FireWire). Just as an example.. Netscape, If I add bookmarks in one computer, it would be useful if they could also be added to the other one. Obviously i don't just use Netscape on my computers, but numerous other programs too that also need to have some kind of an auto update file feature. So I ask you.. What is the best and most straight forward way to do this?

PS, Before any moderators get all upset and move this post to the networking forum.. I already know how to Network Macs. So I ask this here as I hope the "File Synchronization" control panel will do what I need. In which case I just need to know how! Perhaps even an Apple script is needed, although I know nothing about creating scripts.
