Depending on your hardware an alternative may be to run a virtual windows box.
I use a package called virtualbox which is free, and find it quite good.  You 
will need to have a copy of Windows to install though.
A number of other virtual applications (VMWare, Xen) exist.
The reason I say it depends on hardware is that some CPU have built in 
virtualisation support.
