That's how i have my roms setup. Same paths on all system. A  
resonable assumption as it is not hard to setup and why would you  
want it necessary to have local copies of roms.

I'm not sure what would be the best way to do this either, but when  
scanning for new roms, you might want to put in a check to see if  
different emulators are scanning along the same rom path so you don't  
end up scanning the same roms multiple times. or would you want a  
scan to only scan the local emulators roms? hrm. it does complicate  
things. just some thoughts i was having.
