    Boot Camp Asistant problem
    I'm on my MacBook and I want to install windows XP (I have an original copy of the CD). On my Macbook I have already installed Mac OS and Ubuntu. I was going to follow the boot camp assistant guide to install windows XP. The problem appears when I open the Boot Camp assistant, I click on continue and a message appears saying that:

    The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition.
    The startup disk must be formatted as single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistand for installing Windows.

    What can I do? I don't understand the problem because my Mac OS partition is already Extended(Journaled).

    So, is there any other way to install windows without using boot camp assistant (i mean make a new partition and then put the windows cd and so on) ?

    Look at:

    Be sure to read their "Myths and Facts".

    If you've got Leopard, the new Disk Utility has an interactive
    way to non-destructively resize Volumes, including adding and
    deleting volumes. Maybe that will help.
