{mosimage}"Boot Camp lets you install Windows XP without moving your Mac data, though you will need to bring your own copy to the table, as Apple Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows.

Once you've completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. (That's the "alt" key for you longtime Windows users.) After starting up, your Mac runs Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac."

I guess if you're not fortunate enough to have a PC as well as a Mac, your prayers have been answered. Personally, I'd rather a faster emulation application, like Virtual PC. However, I've heard Microsoft are lagging (surprise, surprise) in that dept and we won't (if at all) see a new Virtual PC for the Mac until mid-2007.
