Stick It on a Network Drive

While not ideal, you can house your music library in a single location (such as a media server) and mount that server whenever you need to open your music library. This doesn't really involve syncing anything, but does allow you to share your music with multiple machines pretty easily. Unfortunately, you still can't have two copies of library file-creating software (you know, like iTunes, the usual culprit) open and you'll have some trouble getting to your music on the go (unless you have a fast upstream connection for your server). Nevertheless, if you just want easy local access and can sync your tunes to your mobile device for listening on the go, a networked option may suit you just fine.
