Yes, Boot Camp Assistant, which is natively installed on your machine. It is partitioning software w/ accompanying drivers to supports Windows.

You need to read the manuals linked to above.
If you want to run Windows and OSx at the same time without booting to each then you will need to run Windows in a virtual machine like Parallels, Fusion, or VirtualBox.

Then you need virtualization software if you want to run windows in an OS X environment. In the guide linked above, you will find this on the first page:
"You can install Windows with an installation disc you provide or, on some Mac computers, with a USB flash drive that contains a Windows 7 ISO image downloaded from Microsoft. Boot Camp Assistant helps you burn the image to the flash drive. "
Take the time to read through what has already been provided.

I know about Virtual machines and bootcamp its kinda like a combanations of both I wan't. -- I wan't to be able to go through the windows installation while in mac os x like when I use a Virtual machine I can go through installing windows (on a VHD) while surfing the web on mac and doing other stuff its a matter of multitasking . I also use linux wich Bootcamp does not support so having software that would turn a virtual machine into a bootable os thats what i wan't (Correct me if i'm wrong . its been a while since ive used boot camp)

I believe the Parallels Desktop virtualization software provides instructions for using a Windows installation in both Boot Camp and within Parallels in virtualization so that you can pick which way you want to do it at any time with a single installation.
I am not sure if that option is also available for other virtualizers like the free VirtualBox, but you might want to look into i.
