I was about to install openSUSE on my macbook pro, so I went to disk utility and attempted to partition it so that 32 GB would be for openSUSE, and the rest for OSX. I thought I had typed in 32, but apparently i left the field as it was when I started disk utility, and it partitioned the rest of my harddrive save for 10 GB. Like an idiot, I quit it midway through and now my computer thinks that the hard drive is full save for 10 GB. I tried rebooting it, but that was to no avail. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Use Disk Utility again from your boot DVD and drag the partition line to fill the entire hard drive. You will have to delete the partition you created first.
