    partition help
    I was using tiger and partitioned my harddrive and installed leopard on it, then deleted tiger, but now i cant make leopard into the whole disk! in disk utility it shows a ton of free space on top of leopards disk and wont let me merge, delete or anything. ive been all over looking for solutions for this but i still cant get it. Do i have to use the boot disk to do this? id really perfer not to. I even installed applications like ipartition and it was acting like they both were boot disks saying that they couldnt be messed with. please help
