    1. Copy your whole music folder onto an external harddrive or a usb pendrive
    2. On your new computer install itunes
    3. Copy your old music folder over the new one on your new computer

    Your iTunes library will be there and everything.

    An external hard drive would be better if your Library is quite large. Or, if your Computer has a Partition, you could copy the files there and just tell it to restore C:\ and not the drive where your music is stored - D:\ (for example)
