Boot Camp allows you to install and boot up Windows.  I'll have to check 
to see if IRDA is supported on Macs (I don't think so, but there is this 
little thing called a remote...)

Internet Explorer for the Mac development was stopped at version 5.2.  
There is Safari/Firefox/Opera support for the web on Native MacOSX.  For 
Wine there is IE6/7/8 and Gecko (the Mozilla engine).  Of course you can 
install Firefox/Opera for Windows as well.

Since I have two Polar CS200's here, it might be good for me to figure 
out how to get them working as well.
