Actually you did not need to do that.but then boot camp didnt work, it said it couldn't partition the hard drive correctly.
Long story short, the only way I could get boot camp to work was to completely wipe the hard disk and install leopard new from the cds.
Just hit this same problem with my new black MacBook. How frustrating - I've spent hours getting this the way I want it.
Or you could install bootcamp following the instructions i posted in another threadActually you did not need to do that.
Insert install disc 1. Then press cmd+shift+g. Then copy and paste the following into the box
/Volumes/Mac OS X Install Disc 1/System/Installation/Packages/
Then look for BootCamp.pkg. Then just run that and it should appear in your Utilities folder.
