I did this a few weeks ago.
You need to get an Apple mini-DVI to DVI cable (it's about 8" long), then a DVI to HDMI cable, from Monoprice, I hought a 10 footer from them.
Works like a hot-damn. I was watching hi def WMV files from IMAX on my wifes MacBook, loaded with Windows NT SP 2 on my 58" Panny plasma. 1080P output on MacBook, tho for my needs, 720P is likely fine.
Also, while you are at it, get a digital audio (Toslink) cable with the mini-adapter (Griffin I think is the manufacturer). Hook up the MacBook to your receiver's Toslink input, and you have 5.1 surround sound bliss. The audio out jack on the MacBook doubles as a mini-digital audio out, a neat trick, with he right adapter.
