    Can i Re-install Leopard and keep My Bootcamp Partition? Cause I think sumthing is up with my hard drive I repair permissions every day and the same tons of permission repairs come up every time i dont know what they are or why the permissions keep messing up everyday. Would reinstalling Leopard Fix this?

    Yes. Just install Leopard on your existing Leopard partition, don't add or delete any partitions and you should be okay. Your Boot Camp partition won't be affected unless you do something to it.

    Exactly right... the bootcamp partition is left untouched.

    A lot of the messages that Disk Utility displays aren't really errors. Do your messages look like any of these?

    If so, you may "safely ignore" them.
