    Ok here's the situation. I'm trying to fix my brothers laptop at the moment and reinstall Leopard. He installed ubuntu and it seems to have deleted the Master Boot record. I've managed to get Leopard to install but the mouse clicker doesn't work. I've managed to narrow down the problem to the MBR, the master boot record.

    In terminal I've typed in sudo fdisk -u /dev/rdisk0

    This has come up with the error "master boot record not found". I'm now trying to find a way to put the Master boot record back.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?

    Thanks,
    R.R.Mac

    Well when you partition the drive you should select the partition option for GUID not MBR for booting an Intel Mac.
