1) Boot off the DVD.
2) select "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" menu.
3) Select your disk and click on "Partition"
4) Click on the little "+" at the bottom.  This will "split" your  
Leopard partition and allow you to install SL on a separate partition.

You can then hold down opt at boot to choose your boot disk or install  
something like rEFIt.
