    Parallels Desktop and VMware Fusion will be able to run any version of Windows in a virtual machine. It's nice because Windows essentially becomes a Mac OS X application, but the major downside is you're not going to get native speeds or performance.

    I recommend you use Boot Camp to set up a partition and install Windows 7 Beta 1 on it. This way, you will get native speeds and be able to take advantage of Aero Glass, the hardware-accelerated user interface. The downside, though, is that you'd have to restart your computer if you want to use Mac OS X again.

    This should give you some good information about the subject:
    Booting Windows on a Mac

    Also, you can search for VMWare Fusion, Parallels, Boot Camp on MRoogle and you will find a large number of threads with information for you.
