    So I'm trying a trible boot with OSX, XP, and Kubuntu. However, for some reason, I can't repartition my second half of the drive with windows on it. I run partitionmagic on it, but it says the entire 74.5GB is BAD and I can't do anything with it, let alone see the partitions. I loaded up Kubuntu to see if I could use that partioner built in, but it listed the Windows partition as being of unknown filetype, so I could do nothing!

    Anyone know what I can do besides completely wipe the windows partition and start from scratch?

    Start from scratch an use operating systems that support EFI? lol, not really what you want, but I dont think that boot camp creates an XP partition that is easily repartitioned.

    I dont think partition magic supports apples partitioning schemes. try using disk util but you will wipe them.
