Can't make my SD backup my startup disk...

I canít boot from my SuperDuper copy. I already read through the FAQ on this, and canít find any answers...
I did Smart Update for Backup- all files, I use a Firewire Lacie Drive [250 GB Porsche-design with two partitions, one of which is reserved for my backup, which should be bootable], Iím currently on Tiger 10.4.9 on a PPC Powerbook G4, etc.
Everytime I do a SuperDuper copy, it says that it copied fine and is bootable. Iíve never tried to boot from it before, which obviously I now realize is stupid, but I always thought it would help me in a pinch. Currently my computer is having problems, so Iím trying to use DiskWarrior to repair my internal HD, then copy back over all my system, etc, from the backed-up bootable partition. So now Iíve been trying to change the Startup disk to the proper partition of my drive (itís called BackUpBootUpHD), either through starting up first from my original Powerbook Software disk, or through System Preferences, then restart. But when I get in there, and select DiskWarrior from where it is in the Applications/Utilities folder of the BackUpBootUpHD, it says it canít repair my Macintosh HD because thatís the startup disk.
Any ideas how to fix? Thanks so much,
