    YES

    The only way: Bootcamp


    2a) 32 bit or 64 bit

    64 bit obviously

    2b) fusion,, or bootcamp
    parallels

    As above

    I'm on it now...

    YES

    2) if it is what way would you prefer i install windows 7?
    Bootcamp, same as vista, just burn the ISO with toast. you can run it on VMware but no aero, aero is what makes it look good.http://dailyapplereview.net84.net/?p=434

    2a) 32 bit or 64 bit

    if you have 2 gb ram, then go with 32 bit, some ppl have had trouble with 64 bit

    2b) fusion,, or bootcamp
    parallels

    As i said, it looks not as good with fusion or parallels, so go with bootcamp.

    There have been some quite good feedback from users installing windows7 on the unibody MBP's. Quite painless for a beta product, just a few caveats.

    OP should definately read the Engadget article.
