It sounds like you fubared the OS X install from Bootcamp. Do you have a firewire external you can install OS X onto and then start up from? If you do, copy your pieces you wish to save (if they exist) under your user name.

If Leopard DVD is allowed as the startup OS - use the Disk Utility to tell us what it sees as partions. Hopefully you will see two - OS X and Windows. If you see only one NTFS partition your Mac was erased to install Windows I think.

You are suppose to partition from the Mac version of Disk Utility to make the second partition and then install Windows into the new partition. Letting Windows control the disk space is deadly as you may find out.
