MINECRAFTfilter: My girlfriend has a really cool world going on her local machine. What's the shortest method from point A to point B toward being able to play multiplayer with her and help build some palaces? (You can assume higher than average technical problem solving abilities and access to equipment, but low knowledse of firewalls and routing, I'm just having a hard time parsing the forums for what I'm specifically trying to do...)

It seems like from cruising the forums, you can seed server worlds? Do I want to setup a server on a LAN so we can play together when we are hanging out in the apartment? Do we just want to find a free-play server and start making our own stuff? Can I actually seed with one of her saves? Will the server be too laggy? (I found a decent how-to, in terms of port opening and routing, but tried it with my wifi connected tiny hard drived laptop so things did not go well). Assume I can find a box to make into a server.
