I had BootCamp with Windows XP installed on my iMac Tiger 10.4.
I deleted that partition, but i tried to found a away to partition my hdd.
I used iPartition, and I saw that I have something like 256 MB free space.
What means wrap partition, because I saw this option in the iPartition menu.
And if I tried to install a retail Mac OS X Leopard from friend of mine that she had it with her MacBook I received a message: "This software can't be installed on this machine"
Where is the problem ?!
Maybe the Leopard retail that friend of mine has it is only for her MacBook ?!
Thanks for any help.

You cant use a MacBook install disc on a iMac. They are model and revision specific.
