Hey guys, I've been attempting to get Boot Camp on my Mac OS X Leopard for a while now but every time i attempt to partition my disc ( 32 gigs for Windows XP ) I get the 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.

I'm not quite sure how to go about doing that, or honestly what it means.
Any help is appreciated.

You didn't quite give us enough information - read the sticky about about saving hours with Boot Camp. If you can open Boot Camp, click on "restore" for now and see if that gets you back to square one. Then print and read carefully the Boot Camp installation instructions and follow them to the letter, plus read the sticky at the top about Boot Camp.

Cheers
