So when you get an external drive you may want to clone your internal drive to it, then repartition and clone back to the internal drive. If you're interested I can post some details of the internal/external drive setup I use with my iMac G5.
Sure, I'd appreciate that. I haven't seen the need to partition the internal drive before, but I've never had one as large as the new iMac ships with.
