How in the world did you fill that 300 Gb drive up so fast?

Anyway, the procedure you followed is the correct one. iDefrag is the recommended way to consolidate a fragmented drive. I can't explain why the DVD you created is not working except to say - try making another one using a different brand of media. Make sure the DVD works on another machine - that is - make sure it's bootable.

If all else fails, backup your data and reinstall Leopard. Then run the Boot Camp assistant again.

BTW, if you've only got 120 Gb to work with you'll be low on available space after you create the Boot Camp partition. Might be time to offload a whole bunch of whatever you have on the drive to an external firewire or USB HDD.

Regards.
