    No, I don't think that's his problem. To the OP: you are trying to install Windows via Boot Camp, and it won't let you partition it right?

    If so, you have to repair the disc. Boot from the Tiger install disc, and repair the disk in Disk Utility. Then reboot, and you should be able to install the partition in Boot Camp once you've fixed the errors.

    It could need to be reformatted. I'd definitely try to repair it first but Boot Camp is very particular about the partition table and file system so you might need to change those. I know I had to.
