They are both right. Hatter's reply would be perfect if you were at a college or university that provides Windows 7 to students through a site license. Some schools provide the physical media - a bootable installer DVD. Other schools provide a download of a special installer package usually in the form of a Windows executable - filename.EXE. Unfortunately, you cannot use it on a Mac. You have to run it on a Windows computer in order to extract the ISO disc image. Some schools can just provide you with the ISO disc image. Once you have the ISO image on your Mac you can burn it to a blank DVD-R that can be used to install Windows 7 on your Boot Camp partition.
An alternative to Boot Camp is to use Parallels, or VM Fusion, or VirtualBox to create a virtualization of Windows on the Mac that runs concurrently with OS X. You also have the advantage that VM software will install Windows from the ISO disc image instead of needing it burned to a DVD. VirtualBox is freeware.
