I also just purchased a Mac, so I'm not completely positive on this yet. I think you'll want to make all of your linux related partitions within that 10gb of free space. I can't say for sure since all my free space was at the end of the disk, but I just created the three partitions like it mentions in the install guide. The Macs assign a partition to the free space, so I don't know how you would go about creating three partitions within that, maybe it will just re-number them for you.

Yeah same problem here too. Although I'm starting to wonder if Free Space can be repartitioned. I can't do it through disk utility without erasing my hard drive.
