I am not overwhelmingly computer literate - the words 'download' n 'install' can unsettle me, alongwith 'primary partition' etc. I have Mac OS X 10.4.11 I only need to have Boot Camp to read one programme - there is no Mac version at the moment but will be later in the year. Once installed is Boot Camp easy to uninstall? Do you just switch it off and on? And is it easy/straightforward to install anyway?

I've been warned off using any kind of Windows system on my Mac, as have been told it could mess up my system, but have no choice. Would I be foolish to attempt to install/run Boot Camp?

Any info appreciated - thanks ;o)

Boot Camp is no longer available to OS X 10.4 users. That is now a Leopard-only feature. If you need to run just one Windows program (assuming it's not a game or 3D intensive), you should look into Parallels Desktop or VMWare Fusion.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
