Don't repartition, and certainly don't try MacOSX on UFS. The OS works 
perfectly from a UFS partition, but the results are less than 
satisfactory with third party app support: many apps won't install, and 
many won't run. Ugly.

A low-risk alternative is to create a UFS disk image and mount that. You 
will get case sensitivity in the mounted partition.
