    You have to have a copy of Windows.

    Search is your friend.

    Since you just got your Mac, and seem really unfamiliar with it, it might be a good idea to hold off on Boot Camp for a while until you get more experience with your Mac. A good first step would be to read the Boot Camp page, which says:

    The web page also offers complete step by step instructions on how to do it.

    You may also want to read the Wikipedia page about Boot Camp to get a better grasp of what exactly it is.

    Get the Boot Camp Course steps (http://www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/) and the setup instructions (http://images.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/pdf/Boot_Camp_Beta_Setup_Guide_v1.2.pdf), print them, read them end-to-end, and when you're comfy, proceed.

    This is something that if done wrong, will make your like really miserable, and as a beta, is not supported by Apple.

    Plus, if you make any errors (like wiping your HFS partition, as has been done by others already), you're without a computer and the ability to get forum advice.
