If you plan to purchase ArcGIS 9.X from ESRI and install it on Windows 7, review ArcGIS Desktop (ArcInfo, ArcEditor, ArcView) 9.3/9.3.1 System Requirements and there are some helpful tips at ArcGIS 9.3.1 Now Supported On Microsoft Windows 7.

Workshop attendees are expected to bring a laptop computer that meets the following minimum requirements: Windows XP, 1GB RAM, 1.6 GHz Processor, 1GB free disk space.

In preparing your laptop for use in the workshop, please be certain that your Windows Operating System is updated via Windows Update. If you have an Anti-Virus software installed (e.g., Symantec Norton Antivirus) and if it has expired, please update the software with a new subscription. Then perform an update on Windows.

Failure to comply with these requests will either delay your ability to use the workshop wireless network or completely negate the possibility of connecting to the network.
