Hi happyprogramming,
You need a copy of Virtual PC. Microsoft just released version 7. It normally comes with Windows XP, but you may find the response snappier if you use Windows 2000 instead. http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/virtualpc/virtualpc.aspx?pid=whichver

I've been using it since version 1.

Cheers!

You'll find the Microsoft web site a little bare in its description of Virtual PC. More complete information is available from this web site dedicated to Mac and Windows coexistence: http://www.macwindows.com/VPC6.html

Here's a summary of all the ways to run Windows software using your Mac. One very interesting possibility is Microsoft's free terminal emulator that lets you run software on a Windows box as though it were your own computer. Also take a look at Bochs and Lismore Blue Label. I haven't used any of these approaches, having found that Virtual PC does what I need.

You might be able to get a cross-platform version from the publisher of your Windows software. Almost certainly you can find a different program that does the same (or very similar) job.

Games and extremely specialized vertical applications are really the only places where you absolutely need to run Windows on a Mac. The vertical applications will probably run fine (though somewhat slower). Any games issued in the past couple of years will seem too slow to be playable under emulation, however.

The terminal emulator turns your Mac into a remote terminal. You then log into a Windows machine and run your software on that remote computer. In other words, you need two computers--but all software runs at Windows native speed.

Microsoft's terminal emulator requires Mac OSX 10.2.8 or later. You can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.aspx?pid=download&location=/mac/download/misc/rdc_update_103.xml&secid=80&ssid=10&flgnosysreq=True
