It should automatically do everything that your old one did. If you don't have access to the old machine, you will need to manually rebuild libraries and apps (You should not be charged for anything that you bought through iTunes).

Try copying the iTunes library files over. I did that when I built my Hackintosh, and it synced up my iPhone with no problems.
If you didn't bring anything over, etc, then you don't have a choice but to sync the phone up as a new iPhone, and then start over with everything.
