new user clone OSX back advice/help

hi i'm a new user so be gentle ;-)

i installed tiger on my lacie external to test it out with my aps etc, i'm now happy with it. I have panther on the internal and a bootable copy of that on the external as well.

so.. what i want to do is clone my external tiger install back onto my internal drive replacing by old panther install. This would leave me with a copy of panther on the external, plus tiger on the external and tiger also on my internal drive which i will use as my main drive.

is this possibel by using SuperDuper, by making my internal the destination and my external tiger install the source?

any help would be much appreciated.

thanks again

The way to do this would be to boot from the external drive, and then use SuperDuper! to copy from the boot drive (the external) to the internal drive.

Shouldn't be a problem. But, let me suggest that you shut down after, and detach the external drive. That'll force aliases to resolve to the internal (since the external won't be available).

Hope that helps!
