    I have a copy of OSX 10.6 and am wondering if by using boot camp I can create a partition and run snow leopard on that. I don't want to replace 10.5 just occasionally run 10.6 on a 10gig partition and an external drive for storage. Is boot camp limited to windows? If I create a partition can I remove it later?

    Boot Camp is not limited to Windows - you should be able to install any OS compatible with your hardware, including OS X, Windows, *nix, etc.

    If you don't know how to install Snow Leopard on a different partition you got it by dubious means.

    if you are planning to install this it means 10.6 will be compatible with powerpc's because in your signature you have a g4 tower!

    The beta isn't though, so he won't get very far.

    And all signs point to the final version not working, either.

    I have to agree. Why the OP is asking about Boot Camp is odd.

    Also... Boot Camp! That isn't available on a PowerPC computer! Therefore, dropped support. :(
