I tried to partision my disk in boot camp and got this error message

''Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.''

A few questions

1) how do i do it i go into disk utility but journal isn't an option.

2) will it erase all my files?

i play online poker for a living and have just moved to a site that doesn't have mac software and have been forced to use my crappy pc but its super slow when i play more than 6 tables so id like to use my macbook

thanks for your help
