    Hello to all :)
    I have purchased a copy of Panther full version of the software. I would like to format the hard drive since it has three partitions at this time. I can see the utility in my OS that will allow me to resize partions but for some reason it is not give me the option to do anything. Can someone tell me how to blow away the partions or format the drive so that I only have one partion?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    you have to boot from the CD to be able to format the drive

    to do so i believe you press C while booting up, then you can open Disk Utility and format the drive, just make sure you have all your data backed up before you do this
