Open iTunes (without iPod connected). Create a new playlist and copy songs you want on your iPod into that list. Next connect your iPod. Once iTunes recognizes your iPod then go to the music tab and click on 'sync playlist only' and chose the new playlist that you created. Click sync. Only the songs in your new playlist should be copied to your iPod.
Go into Itunes and dock you IPod. Cancel any sync programs. In the IPod controls of Itunes, select manually manage music. This will prevent your IPod from wiping out the music and or playlists. You can then delete music from your IPod or drag and drop songs into your IPod as well.
The licensing rules might have changed now so that purchased songs from Itunes can be added to another IPod as well. If you copy it in from another computer and it plays, then it worked. There was a time that wasn't the case. Purchased movies may or may not work as well.
