I have a Mac Pro Tower with the current version of Lion installed. I am trying to run Pro Tools 9 on it and need to use Snow Leopard to do so. I have already partitioned the drive, but i need to know how to install Snow Leopard on the new partition.

Boot from the Snow Leopard disk and choose the partition you want it on.

Caution: if the Mac Pro came with Lion, you won't be able to install Snow Leopard. Macs can only run on the same system (or newer) that they shipped with.
