Sorry if this has already been done, but here is how in a few easy steps. I've done this on four desktops and two laptops without a failure. If you've let iTunes install with it's default folders, this will work.
1.) Do not install iTunes yet on the new PC.
2.) On the old PC, in the folder (your name)Documents\My Music\, copy the iTunes folder to the new PC in exactly the same place. Copy, not move in case something fails. A home network is needed or a bunch of CDs or DVDs is needed.
3.) Install iTunes on the new PC using the installer defaults.
When you open iTunes on the new PC all your music and especially the iPod registration will be there. Plug in the iPod.
