Since you didn't do this, you have two choices:

- Restore in full (see the User's Guide), which will require using your CD/DVD and Disk Utility, since your backup isn't bootable.

- Purchase the OS disc and use it to re-clean-install, and point it at the backup when prompted.

It's generally a very good idea to have the discs for the OS version you're using. I know it's a bit of a thrill to get a free copy of Leopard (or whatever), but without the DVD/CD you can't always do proper repairs, archive-and-installs, etc.
My original post must really have been off the mark, because your response seems very complicated to me, and I don't follow it. I paid for my OS, by the way, and I still have the discs, but I'm not sure how they figure in to my particular problem. As of now, Super duper is only on my backup drive, so I can't use it to restore itself, or the other apps I lost, until I get it back on my Mac. I'll will contact them, since I don't have my registration info any more. Thanks for trying to help.
