Hi Seth!

This is easy to answer. Rivendell stores the audio imported in /var/snd  
you can share this across the network with other Rivendell hosts using nfs.


Rivendell stores the information about the files, logs, etc. in a MySQL  
database. For this you need to setup MySQL to be able to be accessed by  
the new host(s).

On the new host you will need to change the setting for the MySQL host to  
the first machine with your database on it. You will also need to mount  
the network share of /var/snd on the first machine at /var/snd on the  
second machine.

See these wiki pages for more info on how this all works.



There is also this page about setting up nfs
