    I'm on the windows part of the install do I format and change the file system or choose "leave the current file system intact (no changes)"???

    did you format it within OS X? what format do you want, NTFS (which can only be read by OSX) or FAT32 (which can be read and write in OSX)?

    IIRC, I just told the Windows installer to put everything in the FAT-formatted partition. Since there was nothing in it, it didn't matter whether it was reformatted or not.

    Did you print out the Boot Camp Installation And Setup Guide? I just checked it; it says that you must reformat the partition using the Windows installer.
