Am I barking up the right tree?

New to this- so let me try something on here.

As I understand it, I can either back up my user files (no OS or Apps) or make a bootable clone (does contain my OS, all of my Apps and user files, etc--that is, EVERYTHING that is currently on my internal HD) on my firewire external HD.

As I ponder which to choose, it seems to me that having a bootable clone available on my external HD would be useful if my iMac HD craps out, while having backed up only my user files would be useful if my OS goes nighty night, but my internal HD is still healthy. If this is correct and given that either bad situation might (will?) occur, why not do both? I have lots of space on the HD.

Am I barking up the right tree??
