You'll still have to install a full copy of the nasty, but Parallels is the way to go for PC virtualization on the Intel Macs.

Parallels would be your best bet:

Parallels works great! Well worth the $50 for it. I would advise getting it now because the price jumps $30 in a few weeks after the $50 promotion price ends.
