A virtual Machine. This would be your best bet.

Last I played with Virtual Box, Win 7 was not an option, this may have changed. Let me know how it turns out. I am running Win7 now, and hate it, but have to work work purposes. I would rather run it as a virtual drive

Yeah - I used to! Now I don't even run a VM of Windows, I just use WINE or ported versions of applications (you can use Office 2010 from a nice app called "PlayOnLinux" in the repos'). Remember to give it a big enough virtual drive though - if I remember right, 7 32-bit wants 16GB and 7 x64 wants 20GB, so give it like 5 over so you don't have to resize later (which is a messy prospect).

Yes, but mind you, you need alot of RAM to do this.

Just install virtualbox and put in a virtual machine with windows 7.

Don't expect too much tho, because everything will be very handycaped
