    hi, I'm trying to put Ubuntu and WinXP onto my new iMac Leopard.

    I follow the steps in
    http://wiki.onmac.net/index.php/Triple_Boot_via_BootCamp

    But when running diskutil :
    # diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 200G "Linux" "Linux" 64G "MS-DOS FAT32" "Windows" 32G

    It complains about "Linux" not a valid file system type.

    Just doing resize the Mac parition is OK :
    # diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 200G

    Retrying the above 3 partition commands still fail.

    Any idea? Is that OnMac steps not for 10.5 OSX?

    Thanks in advance.


    BTW, I am a unix/linux guy, so pretty comfortable with commands. But new to Mac ...

    Yes, it appears that these instructions have NOT been updated for Leopard yet.

    Well since you will be formatting the partition on install of Ubuntu anyways I would just make the partition FAT32 actually I would make the second partition you should have for swap FAT32 as well.
