i'm trying to open up more space on my hard drive by doing a full erase. Available space is about 6GB on a 80GB drive. Running OS X 10.4.11. on a Mac Book Black. Want to install 10.6. SL.

In Disk Utility the Volume Format box is greyed out. It's set as Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

How can i change it?


Thanks for any advice.



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2G CoreDuo 2G Ram
