    Can I partition my hard drive in order to install Suse Linux without having to reinstall OS X? I'd like to make a 7gb partition and install with CD's.

    I've never heard of a free method, but there's always iPartition.

    Uh, the Boot Camp Assistant offers non-destructive partition creation. Or am I missing something?

    bootcamp would work, but it appears that he is on a Powerbook G4.
    interesting thing would be to try Bootcamp anyways, it is usually used for the intel macs, but i don't see why it wouldn't work on a PowerPC mac, unless it looks for certain firmware before running.

    I think bootcamp definitely needs the firmware update for intel macs.

    Since I just ordered my computer and bootcamp has been out for some time, will I need to download it, or does it come with my imac?
