Best bet is to start with VMWare using a virtual partition. If you have problems with that, then look into using Boot Camp. The only advantage to using VMWare with a Boot Camp partition is if you need to sometimes run native (direct Boot Camp), and sometimes virtual (VMWare) using the same windows install.

If you do need to partition the drive, the Boot Camp Assistant does it. It'll also prompt you for a disk to put the drivers on, then it'll boot from a DVD. You'll need that Windows iso on a DVD or a flash drive.
