iDevices are really set up to only fully sync with one iTunes library at a time. This could be on multiple computers but it can be tricky keeping the library identical on multiple computers. There are minor exceptions:
iOS: Syncing with iTunes - http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1386 - You can sync everything or selected playlists. "WIth iTunes 10, when automatically syncing, you can also manually drag items to the iDevice. These will show up in Manually Added Songs at the bottom of the Music tab after Playlists, Artists Genre, Albums." - https://discussions.apple.com/message/18919754
Using iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1202 - You can manage your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers as long as you have set the device to "Manually manage music." - e.g. adding music from a second computer to an i-device.
You can put the old library on the new computer too -

Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings: Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive. Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the library.
