    I would try to make a disk image; recreate the partition and put the image back. If you chose NTFS this might be more tricky (norton Ghost?)... If you used FAT32 you can have a look at 'dd'... Don't know if 'dd' works for NTFS as well; perhaps it does...

    Shoulda got X-Plane. It was made on the mac and is Mac OS X native. The graphics arent as good as FSX (though still pretty decent) but it is a more realistic flight sim and the only household flight sim certified by the FAA to train pilots with. Also... you can download new planes to use for free from their community if you wish to do so. :)

    Oh.... and it is also available for Windows and Linux as well :)
