Moving iPhone backup to new Itunes installation

I'm going to format my computer soon and plugging the iphone in the fresh itunes installation will erase all data/settings from it, correct?

"No, the data and settings will not be erased. You can set it so that the new computer can copy the data off the iPhone and re-use it when you plug it in.

That said, there's no need to move the iphone backup data over to the new itunes. Just format, reconnect, choose the options necessary to copy the data back from the iphone to the reformatted com, and voila! You are ready to go.

One thing : Music must be copied over from the old iTunes to the new iTunes. The rest is not necessary."
