    Unless you have another computer, you will have to sync it to the same library. Now this doesn't mean you have to have the exact same apps and music and whatever else you have on your iPhone. You can "cherry pick" the stuff out of your library that you want on the iPad if you don't want it to be the same as your iPhone.

    Helpful hint:
    You may also want to set your preferences to NOT automatically synch your device. I made that mistake once and all my checked iPhone apps, music, and movies synched to my iPad.

    iTunes
    Edit
    Preferences
    Devices tab
    Check Box - Prevent (devices) from synching automatically
