Hi!
You can find the instructions for Boot Camp at Mac 101 at
Mac 101: Using Windows on your Mac via Boot Camp

The software is already on your machine. If you have a look in Utilities you should see Boot Camp Assistant.

G'day and welcome to the forums.

And the best advice is to start up Bootcamp Assistant and print the guidelines and have a good read of them. From there it is pretty easy going. Also the Windows 7 version you will be installing will require activation with Microsoft.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
