so if you sync now it will erase the ipod but since you have everything already put on the new mac, that stuff will simply transfer back over to the ipodHP Pavillion Ze2000, Windows XP

First of all backup your itunes library, just in case... But I guess you already use Time Machine to backup data. Make sure you disable automatic sync in itunes. Connect your phone, control-click on the symbol and backup in itunes, transfer your purchases. After the phone is set up by itunes you can sync your data back to the phone. See these articles:

Much appreciated. I will do it. Will definately be syncing to the Mac side.
I had though I could sync to both WinXP and Mac, but Mac alone if fine.
I wish I had known about Apples sooner. I cannot believe I have been missing out on all of this the entire time. Glad that I got an iPod Touch which is what really opened my eyes up to Apple.
