    Every time I select my Panther partition in Leopard the Finder crashes.

    In my Mac Pro I have 1 disk with 2 partitions, Panther (just the old name of the partition) and Tiger (really containing Tiger). On another disk I installed Leopard. When I try to access the Panther partition finder crashes. When I check the permissions of the Panther partition with Tigers disk utility everything is ok. When I use Leopards disk utility it says that not all permissions are ok.
    What to do?

    Disk Utility and repair disk.

    Likely it isn't permissions that are the problem, if you run console.app and look at you fsck_hfs log you may see that there is something wrong with the drive partition deeper than permissions.

    I've noticed that Leopard is a bit more strict about stuff that used to be OK on other OS versions. So I get more disk errors on older CDs and older images/partitions, along the lines of "the disk image your are opening may be damaged and could damage your system" warnings.
