Replacement phone - getting back my purchased apps?

Can anyone tell me how to reinstall the apps I purchased on my first Droid to the new, replacement Droid I just got?   The guy in Customer Service rambled off the process to me yesterday over the phone but I can't figure out how to do it.

Purchased applications are tied to the Google account you had used on the old phone. As long as you sign into the new phone with the same account, the purchased Apps will be listed as "Purchased" in the downloads area of your Market application.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Also, now that the droid is on 2.2, your apps, on their market page, have an option at the top to automatically update.  If this box is checked, when you get a new phone, once you sign in with your google acct., your apps will automatically download.
