    Hi, I have been working on Leopard OS on my Macbook Pro and mostly developing iPhone apps. I got Snow Leopard at WWDC. I am wondering whether I can install Snow Leopard w/o removing Leopard i.e. have both OS running and basically boot to any OS I want. Has anyone done that? Any thoughts suggestions will be appreciated.

    Partition your hard drive and install Snow Leopard on the empty one.

    Thanks! Can I use Boot Camp to do partition? Also, will it cause any issue with my data on Leopard? Thanks for the fast response!!!

    You could install to an external hard drive, or partition your internal drive, but that would require a format and re-installing Leopard as well.

    I think you could use bootcamp. And no, it will not cause an issue if you partition. Just don't quit the application while it's partitioning.
