Audio Between Computers

what is the best way to connect the audio between a PC and a MAc .

i wannna route gigasampler and/or kontakt2 out from the PC to my MAc running Logic pro. I already have a Motu Ultralite on the mac.

I would rather keep all digital. so what are the option for this. i was thinking 8 outs so I can stem orchestra parts.. like strings on audio 1-2, drums on 3-4, piano on 5-6 for example.

MADI? Digital I/Os? network?

it's been a few years since i had a mac & 2 pc's @ my place.
my roomate was on OS9 due to not wanting to upgrade all his software & the interface wasnt too smooth. basically i could look @ his files like a webpage if he setup the sharing. so seeing folders & passing wav's back & forth was the extent of the connection. i hear the options have improved.

well i dont mean networking them. i mean triggering the samples from logic pro or PT via midioverlan or midi I/os and trigger samples in gigastudio in realtime and then recording the outcome. so its like having an outboard sampler. which is the ideal setup for film music and orchestra sequencing.

its pretty powerfull stuff if u have sample libraries like sonic implants , vienne etc.

i went from using a low level pc recording stereo via spdif with a maudio delta card to going all native with my g5 which can take a big load but the only problems is loading the samples itself. about 20 minutes each time i restart. so im getting a better PC but looking into a good multi digital i/o or expand my mind on what other poeple are using for this type of setups.
