    Are you holding down the alt key when you boot your machine up? this usually gives you the option to switch operating systems.

    i have to say i have just installed parallels instead of Boot camp and find it much better and easier to operate.. especially the beta version which allows drag and drop between OS's... you can run it on trial keys if you dont want to buy it immediately...

    hope this helps.
