    Copy the entire iTunes folder over. Your best bet is an external hard drive.

    Da!

    Go to My computer or computer by pressing the start menu then click the
    the drive that iTunes is stored on most likely C; drive the Program files and
    look for the iTunes folder then when you find your library then open a new My computer or computer by pressing the start menu and find your external and drag the iTunes over
    and

    Hopefully you're logged into your user account.

    My Documents -> My Music -> iTunes

    Once you copy that entire folder it'll drop right into ~/Music over on OS X. That's in your home directory in OS X. ;)
