    Partition a portion of Hard drive

    I have just partitioned a portion of my hard drive and want to install OSX Snow Leopard there because some of my software won't run on Mountain Lion. I've made the partition, but don't know how to install the software on it. How do I restart and access the partition I made???

    Do you have a Snow Leopard DVD? If you do, reboot with the DVD in place and press the C key as the Mac starts up. This should allow you to boot from the DVD and start the Snow Leopard installation process. You will just have to select you new partition during the installation.
