10.6.8 does not have a recovery partition. You need to boot from the install disk and run Disk Utility from there.

Depends, where did you put it?
We're talking about a physical disk (DVD) that came with the computer.

Then you need to contact Apple and buy another one (or Ebay).
You need to get the non-model specific install DVD or one for exactly your model Macbook.
