You can use bootcamp to install windows. You will need to create a drivers disc in the process. What is the current OS on the laptop? What version of windows are you trying to install?

You will need to know the OS version and what version of windows you are installing. Also you have to be able to log on the computer using OSX. You can not format a mac and just put windows on it.

Your options for running windows applications on a Mac are running Boot Camp, VMware or Parallels.  All of these products run a full fledge version of Windows on your Mac.  If you only want to run specific programs you could try something like Wine or Crossover but chances are you'll have a tough time getting the applications to work with Wine or Crossover.

I also use VirtualBox (free) to run Win 7 on my OS X 10.6.8.  It was much easier to use than when I had VMWare. My tech liked it better too, especially since he did the initial setup.
