    I am running OS X 10.5.8 with Boot Camp version 2.0. I've got, as you can see, enough HDD space for what I want done.
    And I'm also running the OS X Extended Journaled format. Does anyone have any clue what's wrong?

    Btw, I upgraded this Mac from Tiger to Leopard and used Boot Camp during the beta phase perfectly. I erased the partition when I had no use for it, however, and now I want it back :C

    It usually means there are files in the physical area the new BC partition wants to use.

    You can do what's suggested (backup, erase, then restore) or use something like iDefrag to consolidate your files and create enough contiguous free space for the BC partition. I suggest iDefrag, since it wouldn't require the backup/restore, and would probably be faster.
