    I need to install leopard onto my laptop using a disc image and need to create a partition on my FW drive. I heard leopard can do this with out formatting.

    TRUE OR FALSE?

    True. You can non-destructively resize HFS+ partitions with Leopard's Disk Utility.

    1. Resize partition on external drive to make room for Leopard install disk.
    2. Add another partition.
    3. Restore the partition you just made with the disk image you have of Leopard.

    Looks like you didn't make a big enough partition to restore the Leopard disk onto.
