Where does iTunes store the files that record playlists and play counts?

There seems to be lots of information about this. In short I'm trying to retrieve a library from a broken computer. I have access to the removed hard. What files do I need to retrieve?

Be good to find somewhere that has a brief explanation of where the files are actually stored.
Note the compnuter was a Windows 7 PC (and a user account connected to a Windows Server 2003 domain)

Hi in case of a Windows 7 PC you will be required to copy
C:\Users\<UserName>\Music\Itunes folder. - Contains your Music Libraries and related information
C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes - Contains your Itunes Preferences
