I did some research and I found that rEFIt makes the OSX install disc nit recognize a Tiger partition. I've read that the solution includes backing up and then formatting. I am going to do this sans the backup. How can I format the drive using an OSX? Will this the Tiger fix the issue of the installer not seeing partition?

Look for the disk utility in the menu bar on top.

You can do an erase and install from the Tiger disk which will restore everything back to scratch.
