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!

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
