Welcome to the Apple boards:
I assume that you have a backup of your HD or you would not be doing these things, any of which could hose your entire drive.
I suggest using the backup to restore your HD to its original state - first reformat/partition the internal HD and then use your backup, (clone or TM) to restore it and start over again.
If you search this forum you will find that many have successfully installed Linux on a Mac as a dualboot system
I suggest using rEFIt as the boot manager.
If you use Linux to create a separate swap file rather than a swap folder inside the actual Linux filesystem, or if you choose to install Linus using separate partitions for / user etc., then the Leopard DU will no doubt be confused and this is probably your problem.
