Take Advantage of the Utilities in the Installer

When you run the Installer and get to the first screen, you'll see a menu item called “Utilities.” This menu gives you access to a number of troubleshooting features on your Mac. If you like, you can stop here before installing Tiger and use the Disk Utility to partition your Mac.

All of the utilities mentioned below, except “Reset Password,” are in your Utilities folder, which is in your Applications folder. You don't need to use the Install disk to access them. But if your Mac has totally crashed and you can't get anywhere at all, insert the original Tiger install DVD, then restart your Mac. Immediately hold down the C key to make sure it boots from the DVD. Do not click any of the installation buttons, but use the tools that are available here.
