Questions (1) Want to use ACT! on laptop and PC. (2) Want to synch the two machines

Hi I currently have a laptop with ACT! 2007 in use. I am buying a desktop PC to act as main machine. Laptop will then be used for travelling. Q1: Can I install ACT! on both machines? Ie. 1 concurrent user across 2 machines. Ie. if I install ACT! from installation CD on the new desktop PC will it accept it? How do I transfer database from laptop to desktop. Just use export and import options? Or what? Q2: How do I sync the two machines? Eg. I've been working remotely on the laptop. I get home and want to just plug laptop into desktop and ensure a 2-way synch takes place (similar to how it works currently when I sync with my PDA using MS ActiveSync). This is my first posting so thanks in anticipation!

Providing you can connect the 2 systems on a network when you get back, you can do what you want by following the steps in this article from the ACT! Knowledge Base - http://tinyurl.com/yuq73k
