Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > Bootcamp Setup Utility

Print off the bootcamp guide (it's on the app/on apples website) so you know what you're supposed to do.

Um, like the above said, read the guide.

Boot Camp doesn't run Windows programs. It simply partitions your disk so that you can install Windows and boot into it. From there, you install LotRO.

You will have to buy a copy of Windows.

Sorry for bursting your little bubble.

Follow the instructions. Make sure you have a copy of Windows XP SP2 or Vista before you start.

Push cmd+space and type "boot camp" and push enter.

Just for the record, searching for "boot camp" in spotlight does not bring up the boot camp assistant for me.

I'm using leopard, and it came up for me the first try. Sometimes spotlight doesn't work perfectly though. I know there are a couple of files I used to have that never would show up in spotlight now matter what I search for.

Do you even read the posts in this thread? You don't install programs using Boot Camp. You install WINDOWS using Boot Camp. Then in Windows, you install the programs.

Again, like the above said, start up Boot Camp and read the guide. It tells you step-by-step.

No, think of it as a normal PC. XP runs fine with 512 MB of RAM.
