Question PowerBook Cannot Boot a MacBookPro backup

Hi, Searched around but can't find this problem. So here goes...

My primary machine is a MBP running 10.4.10
I have a LaCie Firewire Drive, that I partioned as APM, and do complete backups of the MBP on to it.

I have a spare Powerbook (12") laptop that I use the the MBP is in for repairs, as it regularly is ....

When I try and have the Powerbook boot from the LaCie backup the powerbook quickly crashes the with error output to screen. The only complaint I can decipher says along the lines of 'Not compatible with Powerbook 6,2.'

Anything I can do about this? It's not critical. But always so nice to be able to boot from the backup when my primary machine is unavailable then to use the backup as a file structure.

You cannot start up a Power PC Mac from an Intel image (or vice versa).
