    I am using Leopard 10.5.8 with boot camp version 2.0. When I try partitioning my drive I get an error message saying it can't partition it. I read that it's from fragmented files, so I got iDefrag. I used the quick defrag (on-line) to defrag my laptop. When it was finished I started partitioning again, but I got the same error message! (No files were harmed when defragging)

    I also read that I should repair my disk/drive, but I don't have my installation disk (I might have misplaced it) so I can only repair disk permissions. When I try verifying my disk I get an error message and it stops.

    Should I find my installation disk, should I try reinstalling boot camp? Or should I just try repairing my disk... I need help, please! VMWare is slow with 3D, and Parallels isn't working for me...

    Well your problem is actually fragmented free space, not fragmented files. You need to run iDefrag in Full Defrag mode or Compact mode so it will make all of the free space contiguous.
