iTunes novice seeks professional help with a possibly non-trivial setup.

My music archive is stored on a network drive (let's say \\server\mp3), and this share is mapped to Z: (Windows XP). I know iTunes can't automatically sense when new music is added, but I'm tired of having to manually select new folders to "import" into the library, especially since I just finished adding the last 50+ CDs from my collection to the network drive.
So here are my questions:
1) How do I delete the iTunes library "index" and create it again from scratch, using the recently-updated network share, without running the risk of deleting the actual mp3s?
2) Any advice on how to keep two instances of iTunes (on different PCs) synchronized?
PS: I've disabled the "let iTunes manage my music collection" option. Should I consider re-enabling? All of my music is already sorted by artist, then album, and all ID3 tags are accurate
