Boot Camp will do this quite nicely. From there you can boot back and forth from Windows to Mac and back again.
Once you have that set up, though, Parallels will actually run Windows directly off that partition. I'd imagine VMware Fusion will do the same thing, but I haven't played with it. The nice thing is that Parallels and Fusion are both virtual machines, not emulators, so you get good performance, especially if you hop up your memory.
