I have a 1TB OWC Firewire drive which I want to use as my backup drive for my internal hard drive, as well as multiple external drives. I don't know the first thing about how to get started doing this. How?

Well, you'll want to partition it first (search around on this forum for instructions), and then follow the steps in the User's Guide (Help > User's Guide). Each source volume should have a corresponding destination partition.

I already read the whole users guide, but it doesn't seem to directly address how to backup multiple source volumes to the same destination volume. I'm really clueless when it comes to this stuff. Is someone willing to walk me through the process?

Each source volume is backed up, separately, to its corresponding destination volume (partition), one you partition it as explained elsewhere here.
