How do I switch back and forth from the Mac to Windows and vice versa on the new macbook?

I have a Windows disk somewhere....but I cant find anywhere to tell me how to do it....this will come in very handy at work, where they all use PCs.

Thanks!

as for at boot, just hold alt down and you can select which OS to boot.

PS. look in the bootcamp forum, youll find all you need without even posting

If you do NOT need 3D graphics you may want to look into Parallels. This would eliminate the need to Stop, reboot each time you switch between OS's.
