It will want to wipe and re-sync with your new computer.

Why not simply take the music files from your dad's MacBook on let's say a thumb drive and add them to your PC's iTunes?

i am in a different country so that wont be happening. i tried to put the music on a usb drive when i was still there but Mac + itunes wont let me copy the i tunes library onto a drive for some reason.

is there a way i can take the mp3 files off the ipod before i sync it? i am using windows 7

Yes, there is. I'd suggest Phone to PC, which costs a small fee (don't recall how much -- $20-30 I think) but does the job perfectly -- will transfer not just the music but the ratings, the playlists, the play counts, photos, videos everything.
