    I am trying to make a second partition on the internal HDD of my Macbook usking Disk Utility. Disk Utility is being run after booting up from the OS X install DVD.

    I get an error of

    "Partition failed with the error

    Filesystem verify or repair failed"

    What is going on? How do I fix it so I can make a partition?

    thanks
