Backup advice Mac Book Pro Lacie 500Gb

I am trying to figure out a backup scheme for my Mac Book Pro 120Gb hard drive. I have one LaCie d2 Quadra 500GB drive and another one on the way.

The problem is that I have more data than the Mac Book Pro 120Gb can hold. Thus the data is in two partitions on the LaCie 2d Quadra. The main data is about 80GB and photos on the second partition at 130Gb.

So with two LaCie 2d I am confused on how to best set up this system. With the photos not on the Mac Book Pro, should I setup a Raid 1, how best to use Super Duper in this situation?

Well, remember: if you've got a partition that isn't backed up, you need a partition on a drive to copy it to as a backup, at the very least. So, you need at least one partition for the internal backup, and then another for the first Quadra's "data" backup (assuming that the first one's 130GB partition is for the internal backup)...
