I don't know much about macs. There are some options but they don't work in all cases. If you can run bootcamp and run windows in bootcamp you can do it. I'm not sure what the requirements are. But, you need a windows environment in order to update the OS.

Only Macs with Intel Processors can install BootCamp. The PowerPC chips... no dice.

VMWare Fusion (VMware Fusion Overview, Run Windows on Mac, Virtual PC on Mac - VMware) might be a nice desktop integrated option as well. -Pk
