I solved my problem! Yay! Ok, so when I installed Leopard, I must have enabled the firmware lock. However, I did not choose a password for it. LOL. I discovered this by booting from the Leopard CD. A strange thing happened when I held down C at startup. Instead of booting from the CD, that rEFI thing started up. So, I chose the option of booting from the CD and that's when I discovered what that lock meant. Now that I have disabled that firmware lock, holding down the option key gives me the traditional startup option screen. So, can I delete that EFI folder? I really don't want to have to do that every time I start osx. Thanks!
