    Hi guys,

    I need to partition my system drive in my iMac to transfer work over to it so I can format the system partition and installed Leopard.

    What application can I use to do this? Need to partition in Tiger - keeping the OS intact, then move over my data so I can then install Leopard onto the system partition.

    You can actually use boot camp for this if you can find it. Since you already have a Leopard install disc you can torrent the bootcamp app safely and legitimately and use it for the partitioning scheme. You will have to reformat it in DU afterwards to HFS+ though.

    Whatever you do, don't do it before you back up first. Partitioning apps that claim to non-destructively repartition disks don't come without risk. If you can't afford to lose it, back up first.
