    I would like to partion my hard drive which has 2 partions already to have 5-6 for the following

    Jaguar
    Panther
    Tiger
    Leopard
    Snow Leopard
    X-Tools

    etc etc

    How do I partion them to make them bootable?

    FYI: I have a mixture of ISO and DMG's. Is there a different process for each file type?

    You won't be able to install all of those OSs on the same system. You can't install a previous version of OS X if a machine shipped with a later version.

    I'm looking to install all of these OS's on an external hard drive to use for erasing machines who have those opertating systems running that system

    Partition the disk as APM, not GUID. Then clone over from each system the OS you want into the partition you want. You will need older versions of CCC (if using that) for Jaguar/Panther.
