I had all of my iTunes files on an external hard drive with an old eMac. I want to transfer the files to my brand-new iMac.

It's easy to copy the iTunes Library folder from the external drive onto the iMac hard drive, and change the preferences so that new songs are stored onto the iMac, but it doesn't change the settings for iTunes. Then, if I "Add to Library" I get two copies of everything: the file that's on the external drive PLUS the file that's on the new iMac. If I delete all of the "old" duplicates, it will mess up my playlists.

Isn't there an easy way to point iTunes to the new Library on the iMac and have it change the location setting for all of the songs?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
