CharlieC, all Boot Camp does is add a partition to your drive where you can install Windows. You need to reboot your computer to select this partition and boot it. Therefore the process of installing Windows is exactly the same as on any other generic PC. You only need to be sure to select the BootCamp partition during the installation process. There is no switching it on and off. Once installed, it can be easily removed by running the Boot Camp Assistant again, and choosing to restore your disk to a single volume.

It is not foolish to use Boot Camp, as long as you read the instructions and are certain to choose the correct partition during the Windows installation. The only way you can mess up your system is if you accidentally choose either the whole disk or the OS X partition while installing.
