martit01,

The information is actually in 2 files in an iTunes folder.  The folder is placed in your user's My Music folder.  For example the path would be something like this ...

   C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\My Music\iTunes

The files are named iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml.  Back up both of those files when you back up your music and they can be used to get your Library and Playlists back up and running on a new machine or new build if your computer crashes.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
