Transferring iTunes library from PC to new laptop

I just got a new Gateway laptop for Christmas and I need to transfer my iTunes from a PC to it - the songs, settings, podcast subscriptions, iPod information, etc.

Would it be best to use the iPod as an external hard drive to do this or is there a way to run a USB cord from one computer to the other to "transfer accounts." Or is there a way to download iTunes again and "reallow" downloads of previously purchased songs (last resort)?

What's the best way to do this w/o having to buy new software or re-download? Thanks and Happy New Year!

Thanks. That looks like it will be a good fix.
