The install media IT gave me over the weekend did not work. The drive kept spitting out the DVD. I got another set of DVDs today which worked.
I reinstalled the Macbook Pro creating a 60GB partition for Leopard (saving the rest for Ubuntu and FreeBSD). Workspaces are also setup. Now I can finally use the Mac for “work” 🙂
