    Basically, what the title says.
    I created a bootcamp partition under Leopard (10.5.1), and i'm thinking about going back to Tiger, since Leopard is just a glorified beta at this point. :p Can i erase my Mac OS partition without affecting boot camp? Will i be able to boot windows after i install tiger again?

    That's a great question. I would think, installing Tiger into a separate partition will have no impact on your bootcamp partition since they are separate.

    Should work but lets us know once you try. :)

    I'm fairly certain you should be able to still boot to windows if you install Tiger again - just make sure you don't remove any partitions!

    Don't forget you can hold down option at startup to manually select the boot partition if worse comes to worse.
