    haha welcome to the family, i am not 1005 sure on all of this being i figured i would just start with mac 4 years ago =D haha but hers my methods

    1 get and external hard drive and transfer your library over.

    2 open itunes and go to file and elect "add to library" then select the file on the external hard drive

    3 continue this process or what you want into your "libraries"

    as for word documents and such just a simple click and drag will do, there is always migration assistance but i am not sure how that all works from pc to mac.

    and you can go to that should also help you out some =D

    and welcome to the rest of your electronics life =D

    well what i did was get an external harddrive for my mini set it up as a share then from my windows machine i copied the entire drive thru my network to the external on the mini then i went to itunes and told it to export my libary also to my shared drive it will take some time to copy if u have a lot of music or video's then when it was done i told my mac's itunes to use that drive the imported the libary from the file windows itunes made and it set up like i had it on my windows box
