You should first buy Windows XP or Vista just like for any other PC (I would go for XP). Either you can install it in a separate partition (Using BootCamp- Free software from Apple) or use a virtualization software like Parallels. If you need XP only to access the Actinic e-commerce shopping cart, Parallels would be a better choice as you can enjoy the best of OS X while running XP in a virual window.
