trouble loading leopard from vista

recently, i upgraded my macbook to leopard from tiger. shortly after doing this, i set up vista using bootcamp.
all was fine for a couple of days, and now, when i try to load leopard again on my computer, i am unable to.
if i try to load it from the menu you get while holding option during startup, when i select it, it freezes up and then loads vista.
if i try to load it from inside vista using boot camp, i get a message saying "Could not locate the Mac OSX boot volume."
i am pulling my hair out here, and cringing in expectance of losing all of my files and music. please, i need help.
thanks in advance!

I don't have an idea how to repair this problem, but I have an idea of how you would be able to pick up your files. If you choice a disto of linux that has a live cd such as ubuntu you could boot into the disk, mount the hard drive and start exporting all your files.
