This may be relevant to your partitioning problem. I backup my iMac G4 (17 inch LCD, OS 10.4.8) with SuperDuper, but also saw this with a G3 iMac (CRT, OS 10.3.9).
I have noticed that after the first clone of a hard drive (say called iMac), using SuperDuper (2.13), to a different volume (with diffferent name, e.g. Backup) on a firewire attached hard disk, the volume name shown by the boot manager, when attempting to boot off the new clone (restart, hold down option key to select boot volume), is the same as the volume that was cloned (ie called iMac, rather than Backup). The Finder still shows the disk as the correct name (ie Backup), just not the boot manager. If this is happening to you, ie both volumes on the firewire disk have same name post clone, then maybe the boot manager only reports the first one it sees. In my case, with a single partition for OSX on the firewire disk, the clone boots and functions OK.
When I have run Diskwarrior 3 (for Power PC only) over the backup volume, it finds a volume name error and fixes it. The boot manager then reports the volume name on the firewire drive as originally named (ie Backup). Apple's Drive Utility (in Applications/Utilities) may be able to fix this volume error too, but I haven't actually tested this myself.
