I have the ToH Leopard dvd and tried installing onto this machine. After several "unable to get root device" errors, i finally managed to get to the installer only to find that I could not use the free space I had created in Windows to create a new paritition. So I went back into Windows and formatted the partition (30GB) as Fat32 and came back to the installer and the installer said it could not copy the files to the specified partition. It can see the drive cleanly but unable to copy files.


Can someone guide me through the installation. Maybe this is not the right version of leopard for this machine?
