Prepping HD for leopard, but 10.4.x install disc doesn't see my hd.

I've been trying to install the iATKO's disc to my HD. At first, it works fine, installs completely, but I get the flashing cursor when I try to boot it.


Fine, I look up ways to fix it, and everything says to either use Kalyway's Make Leopard Bootable disc or a 10.4.x disc to format the drive before trying to use iATKOS to install.


But when I use a uphuck 10.4.9 disc OR Kalyway's disc, neither can see my hd, which is a SATA drive.


I'm stuck, and I don't know how to properly format a disc without either one of those options. I searched and brought back tons of threads without anything to do with my problem...


Is there a boot cd (gparted?) that can make a mac osx journaled partition so I can install directly to it? I'm trying to prevent from making another useless disc. :P


Thanks in advance.


EDIT: never mind, messing around with gparted fixed it.
