'Ignore Ownership' question

Forgive what might be a dumb question, but I'll admit it, I'm less than a computer wiz...

Should the 'Ignore Ownership on This Volume' box be selected on my external HD that I'm using for a bootable back-up? I read one article (MacWorld 7/04) that seemed to imply it was crucial that box be checked to not run into problems if trying to boot from the back-up.

But reading answers here, it seems like your recommendation is not to check that box. Indeed the implication was that checking that box could cause problems, not solve them.

Before reading the article, I did a back-up with the box not checked, and it seemed to work fine (I was able to boot from it).

But for future, what's the best way to go?

(By the way, SuperDuper has been amazingly easy to use so far. I'm telling all my other old, luddite friends).
