    I just bought and installed snow leopard and when i did i restored to factory settings so i could start fresh. However i wanted to restore my itunes back to how it was, but i can seem to work it out. If someone could tell me an easy way to do it i would really appreciate it!

    You should be able to fish it out of your Time Machine backup. Start clicking through the backup.db folders until you get to the "iTunes Library" folder inside of the Music folder. Then take that backed-up iTunes Library folder and drag it into the exact same location in your new installation, so that it replaces your new empty iTunes Library with your old one. That should do it for ya.
