Under the advanced tab in the iTunes preferences there's an option to copy files to the iTunes Music Folder when importing. Untick that and you should be fine.

Check out this (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iTunesMac/7.0/en/566x.html) article. It explains it a bit better, but basically you just add things to the library as you normally would but iTunes doesn't put a copy in the iTunes folder so iTunes will just reference the files where they are stored now.
