    I ripped all my CDs to the music folder on my mac so I have them all there, and when I add them in Itunes I add them to my itunes library, can I now delete the original folders and it will still be in my itunes library?

    I would say absolutely yes, delete away, but just to be sure we're on the same page open up your music folder and then in another finder window open up your iTunes Music folder (usually in your music folder > iTunes > iTunes Music). As long as there's two separate files for your music delete the music files from your Music folder (just not the ones in the iTunes etc folders).

    As long as by "Copy files to iTunes folder while adding to library" is selected in the iTunes preferences (under Advanced in 5.0), which it is by default, you should be fine. :)
