ITunes Library Problem

I have a Macbook and a Mac Mini. My iTunes Library is on an external HD. ITunes on both computers points to the library on the external HD. And here's the problem: On the Macbook, I have 5504 songs, on the MacMini I have 5932 songs. Because all the songs are one library, I don't think I can sync the music. Is there a way to get the same number of songs on both computers. I realize I may not be explaining this very well, so if clarification is needed, I'll try to provide. Thanks for your help.

If you are using itunes 9, you should be able to turn on home sharing and copy over tracks not included your library.

You will have to make sure library sharing is turned on in your preferences. From there click advanced on the menu bar and turn on home sharing. Will have to be done on both machines.

Once on, you should see an option to show all tracks or only those not in your second library. Select all or some and import.
