I've been doing that for a while, and have either shared between two PCs
with different OS'es or a Mac running OS X and a PC. It doesn't seem to make
a difference who's the host, other than the fact that it might be better to
host it on a Mac because of type/creator/extension issues.

Just my $0.02,
