    Linux and Boot Camp Troubleshooting
    The other day I burned Linux Ubuntu 7.1 on a CD. I decided to partition my HD using Boot Camp, so when Boot Camp asked me to insert a Windows CD I inserted my Linux one instead . It worked out fine at first but after I restarted my MacBook I couldn't boot on my Mac HD anymore. I held the option key and saw only 1 HD which was Mac HD... strange . So then I booted that HD and went on Boot Camp again to restore my partition to a single volume and it wouldn't let me! I have tried everything on Disk Utility to restore my partition but no luck... Help would be very appreciated (I only have a 92 GB HD now cause of that... )

    Boot off your Mac Install DVDs and then launch disk utility from the menu bar. Repair the disk. It should detect that the free space is not correct and resolve your problem.

    Exclamation Erasing free space using Disk Utility...
    I think I found a solution to my Linux partition problem! The thing is that I am not sure if it's gonna work... What will happen if I click Erase Free Space using Disk Utility, on my Mac HD? Is it safe? I need advice for that...
