Hi

I would like to ask if there is a way I can use SD to "safely" do this.

- install Leopard on an external FW drive
- i have Tiger running on internal drive of my MBP
- i want to have Leopard use my Home folder located in the internal
drive.
- so I can boot up either Leopard or Tiger to do my work and have
all my documents, mails, bookmarks etc consistent between the two
OS

Can SD safetly clone feature be tweaked to not do the clone but just
have the OS'es share the home folders?

If not, is syncing home folders between Leopard and Tiger safe?

That's what the Sandbox is all about, lonewolf...

Dave, but if i use Sandbox feature, the Tiger OS from my internal drive will be cloned to the external FW drive. I want to run Leopard on the FW drive not Tiger. Is this possible?

You'd update the Tiger on sandbox to Leopard using its disc.

I'm jumping into this conversation. Please pardon me. Are you saying that you first create the Sandbox. as usual, & then use Leopard disk to upgrade OS X every time the Sandbox is "SmartUpdated"?

That's right, as you would with any OS update.

Please pay close attention to the various caveats that come along with Leopard. I can't discuss them, but you should read the material you have.
