    Boot Camp to a Newbie
    Please have patience with me..I'm not very computer savvy

    I just converted to Mac from PC, and I want to install Windows for one thing- my games. It would cost a fortune to go through and rebuy all my games for Mac.
    However, I have absolutely no idea how to do it- or if it's even worth it. Anyone care to explain it to me, or point me in the direction where I could read?

    You need to enable boot camp - basically a separate bootable partition where you can install windows. Once installed you can choose to boot into Leopard or Windows by holding the Option key down when starting your MAC

    Have a look here to get you started:

    Post back if you have any problems.
