How do you grow roots on a weeping willow cutting?

My friend simply cuts a good sized stem and puts in in the ground while the leaves are still coming out. After that time, I would normally put the stem into a container of water until roots showed up. Willow has a natural affinity to 'root', in fact, you can boil willow plant, and use the cooled water to root other plants, by dipping the stem into the water, then placing in dirt.
