    You can make a boot camp partition and then have parallels use that to run windows in mac os x. I tried it but it always got corrupted (3x). Hopefully they've fixed the bugs by now but be careful.

    Boot Camp just partitions your drive
    That allows you to run Windows

    Parallels or VMWare can run Windows from your Boot Camp partition

    Either works fine
