I have a G5 iMac which I want to repartition the internal drive so I can install Ubuntu and a little partition. I'd like to run a Backup - Copy All to an external FW drive, then boot from that drive and repartition the iMac. I would then run a Backup - Copy All to the main partition on the iMac.

I should then have a bootable OS X volume on the iMac again. Correct?

It should work assuming the partition format is Apple Partition Map, yes. But perhaps it might be easier to install Ubuntu to an external drive?

I plan to do that for my Core Duo but the iMac is going to a guy who only does Linux at this point. I want him to be able to use the machine as accustomed until he's ready to convert to Mac.

Thanks again.
