    I'm trying to install bootcamp on my MB, but it can't partition my hard drive. I'm a college student home for the holiday and left my leopard DVD at my dorm. I have iPartition and iDefrag and the Coriolis CDMaker. Are those programs safe to use with leopard? If so, what should or shouldn't I use, preference wise?

    Note: getting a new leopard disk isn't an option

    when i attempt to partition the drive, it tells me that it cannot because disk verification has failed and i should repair the drive. Disk utility lets me repair the permissions but not the disk. since i don't have my leo DVD i can't boot from the dvd to repair the disk. that is what i'm trying to do.

    i thought what i could do is use the 10.4.9 dvd image from the coriolis cd maker and run the disk utility that comes with the disk. does anyone know if that works?

    anyone know?
