    I am just wanting to clarify a few things with Leopard. I currently have XP on my MBP but need to give it more room thus I am about to restore my hdd using bootcamp and then split it and install XP again. Now what I need to know is when I buy Leopard can I just unistall Tiger and then install Leopard without having to redo XP again?

    OS X won't erase your Windows partition using the default installer.

    Great to hear. So all I have to do is wipe off Tiger and install Leopard on the correct partition? Also will I still be able to choose the boot up drive etc when i have installed leopard?

    When you pop in the Leopard disk, just boot from it and you should be able to select your Tiger partition and perform a clean install (erase partition and install) as an option. Doing this will leave your windows one untouched. If you DID want it to clear out both, you'd have to boot to disk utility and repartition your drive into just one again.

    You won't have to uninstall Tiger. Just upgrade to Leopard.
