I was able to jailbreak using Greenpois0n RC6 and i installed nitotv. I then installed XBMC. How do I setup my Apple TV 2 so that I can stream content/videos from my mac book pro to the ATV2?
I tried to use exposed but can't find it on the main menu.

Why not try plex? I found plex to be a lot more user friendly and easier to set up.

You have to share the folder on your MAC and ATV2 will see it when you fire up XBMC.

Where do I find Plex once I jailbreak with greenpois0n?
I want to use my appletv so I can see exactly what I see on my MBP. Is that possible or do you only get access to the files?
For instance, if I open up a streaming video in safari on my MBP, id like to be able to see it on my MBP

You'll need a VNC client for that, we currently only have a VNC server for the ATV2.
If you want to access the files on your MBP, you can do so from XBMC.
I just setup an SMB share in my iMac and then added the "Windows Share" in XBMC
