I am new to the Mac Book space and also a new user to VMWARE. I bought my VMWARE Fusion 3 today and also ordered a Windows 7 OEM (Professional 64bit version) from Mac Mall.. I have both the products with me, however I heard from a few friends that the OEM version would not work with VMWARE on my mac book.. is this correct ?

If this is not correct can anyone advise me if I can go ahead and install the OEM version of Windows 7 on my Mac book pro via VMWare.

I have Snow Leopard installed and have a unibody, 13inch Mac Book Pro - 4G,250G HD.. let me know if you need more information.. Please help as I am eager to try this out on my system but do not want to try and harm my system and also loose the chance to return the product if it does not suit me.

Please help !! I am new to this space..

This is what I used to get Windows 7 working with VMware Fusion.

Just follow the guide. It has screen shots and stuff so it's kind of hard to get lost.
