No thanks to the information on this website, I found the answer. There are two ways to transfer music, etc. from one computer to another. The first way is to do a backup and restore (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1382?viewlocale=en_US). The second is to copy the itunes folder from "Music" from the old computer to the new (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1329). If you follow the first method, none of the information regarding what you have listened to is transferred, and you get that "Erase [your ipod]" message. If you follow the second, the ipod syncs just fine and (except for audiobooks which apparently have to be reauthorized) works just like it did on the original computer. Unless I missed it, this information was nowhere to be found in the referenced support pages.
