if you want to run it inside OS X (i prefer this over separate boot) than you will have to choose between Paralells
or VMware Fusion
. without starting a war about which is better i will say that i run one of them on my iMac and one on my Macbook and i prefer VMware but you can do your own research.
FYI - Windows 7 runs great inside OS X on one of those choices.
i like the ability to install and run any software so i always have XP (Lite version) running along side OS X. i use OS X 99% of them time but like the option for a windows programs like DVDFab for example.
here is a snapshot of my desktop:
i did do a little customizing of the XP theme to make it look better but other than that it is just XP and VMware Fusion.
being that you are new i just thought i would share this with you as it usually interest people that have switched.
good luck and i am sure you will find all your answers on this great forum.
