I have recently installed an Intel SSD 120GB and upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion and am trying to use the bootcamp assistant but it says the startup disk does not have enough free space, but i have 41Gb free. What can i do to get it to work?
Defragment.

Or, backup, erase the disk, restore from backup.

ran disk utility and was able to fix the issue.
That's interesting, in that it means the original error message is rather unhelpful as well as bogus.

You might reboot single user mode and run:

Code:
fsck_hfs -r /dev/rdisk0s2
This is not available in the GUI, and causes the catalog to be rebuilt. If errors were found with the usual check, this will probably find more possibly a lot more. Always have a backup!
