    Here's the story, I went to install XP to dual boot.
    The installer came up and I deleted the wrong drive erasing the mac partitions on there.
    I didn't format them at all, I just deleted the partition table.
    Is there any application or command I should use to restore the HFS+ partition table?
    The contents on the drive are still unmodified.

    Thank you for any responce.

    If you indeed wiped out the partition table, it's best to completely erase the drive, create a single partition, format it to HFS+ and re-install OS X. Boot the machine with your Leopard disk 1 and proceed from there.

    Thanks! that's what I figured I needed to do.
    I forgot to mention that this drive was not the boot drive.
