    Remove Dual Boot

    Is it easy to remove the dual booting of Leopard and Hardy?

    I want to install Hardy temporarily as a dual boot and then remove it, just so I can repair the boot-up of Leopard on a MacBook.

    Please help me with my question if I am asking this in the wrong way.

    When you dual boot you make two partitions, and I guess your question is weather it is easy to remove the Ubuntu partition from os x.

    The answer is yes. You can remove the partition using disk utility with a few clicks. This will bring back what ever space was on the Ubuntu partition to you os x partition. You will not have to format or change anything on your os x partition in order for this to work.

    Is this disk utility a part of Ubuntu or OS X, please?

    Disk Utility is found in OS X:
    Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities

    It is also available on the Mac OS X install DVD.
    I would recommend using the DVD if you are having problems with Mac OS X.

    This might also come in handy so that your Mac OS X will be able to read a
    EXT3 file system.
    Ext2 Filesystem 1.4d4
