    In order to boot into Windows, you need the following things.
    -Windows Install Disc
    -Mac OS X Install Disc

    You do need a Windows Install Disc if you did not install it on your Mac before. While in Mac OS X, go into the Applications folder then into the Utilities folder. Double-click on the Boot Camp Assistant. It will then ask you how much space on your hard drive that you want to use for Windows. Let it do its thing then put in the Windows install disc and click on the Start Installation button. Go through all the Windows installation steps. After installation is done, put in your Mac OS X install disc to install Boot Camp on Windows to allow it to work properly on your Mac. After that you will be able to boot into Windows anytime you like.
