    I’ve heard it’s supposed to be possible. What hoops must i jump through for me to run Quicken on my my Mac?

    thanks for helping out a bonehead!

    2.66 GHz Quad-Core Mac Pro
    3GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 120
    …and a few TeraBytes o’ storage
    (then it’s on to PetaBytes, ExaBytes and MosquitoBytes!)

    The basics:
    Boot Camp (already on your machine), or
    Parallels Desktop, or
    VMWare Fusion.

    Then, installation of a full retail purchased version of Windows.

    Windows via Boot Camp requires dump out of Mac OS X and boot back up as a Windows box.

    Parallels and Fusion run Windows within Mac OS.

    Tons of info on the subject, starting at and elsewhere.
    “Apple-Windows on Mac” forum on the COW, and Tim Wilson article on the subject
