Syncronize directories in 3 machines

Hi everyone!
I have 2 computers at home, both with Kubuntu Jaunty and a "server", a NSLU2 with Debian, which exports a 500G drive on my network through NFS.

I want to keep my music collection on all of them: I need it on the computers for local playback and on the "server" because it's accesed by my PS3 through UPNP.

I would like that whenever I add some files/folders on any of these 3 machines they are synchronized with the other 2 (through a daily cronjob if possible).

I already use rsync to backup /home, but AFAIK the synchronization is one way only.

Any advice?
Thanks in advance.
