Using Migration Assistant and Sparse images

Greetings everyone!

Maybe a silly question, but I'm unable to find a clear answer...

I use a PowerBook G4 1.67 GHz under 10.4.7, and I want to completely reinstall the system software. That means, formatting my internal HD and start again from scratch, so no Install and Archive. But hey, we have Migration Assistant! How convenient! And yes, I have a external FW HD, a LaCie Big Disk. And there is wonderful SuperDuper. So, there shouldn't be a problem.

But, I have several files on the LaCie and I have no room where I can store them temporarely in order to free up the LaCie to use it for a bootable copy of all my programs and data. Simply copying using SuperDuper will erase the LaCie completely.

So now for the Big Question: if I make a complete copy of my internal HD to the LaCie using the 'Sparse Image' option, will I be able to use the Migration Assistant to move all my programs and documents back to the PowerBook after a fresh install of 10.4? And if this is possible, should I use the "Read/Write" or "Read only" option?

Many thanks in advance for your answers! ...and greetings from Holland of course!
