10.6 firmly entrenched the new Partition scheme, GIUD. If you want to boot 10.6 on it, A drive on your Mac needs to have GUID partition Map.
If this is a notebook computer, you will need to make two backups of all your files and erase the Internal drive (which erases all the files on it).
If this is a 65lb Tower computer, the path of least resistance is to buy a new drive and install it in one of the internal bays. WD 1TB black is a good performer at under US$100.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

Well, the new-to-me Intel Mac Pro came with a 250gb blank (no OS) drive I could use. Since it presumably was used on this Mac, does it need the GIUD thing, or will initializing it (if not already by the seller) be enough? I really was hoping to use my old 10.5 HD, so that I wouldn't have to reinstall my apps on another HD.
