    Default I know the answer to the second question.... ^_^

    I can't answer the first part, but I can answer the second part.

    After you boot the installer, at the beginning screen or the "rights" page, go up to the bar at the top and choose Utilities. Select Disk Utility (or something like that). Each of your partitions, assuming you formatted them with Windows, will show up as individual disks under the main hard drive. They'll be called "disk01", "disk02", and "disk03". Select the partition you want (make sure you get this right!), change the format to an Apple format, rename it, then click "erase". It will erase the partition and reformat it with the Mac format. Exit out of the Disk Utility and go on with the install -- when you get to the end, the partition you reformatted will show up as the only destination to install to.

    That's what I did -- hope that helps!
