I know i did this once before and had some hassles so i want to make sure i have it right this time. I make a full bootable OS on my external firewire drive with Superduper. I am about to load Leopard which I know Superduper is not compatible with. If I dont like or want to revert back to tiger which is on my bootable drive whats the best way to do this (erasing everything on my internal drive and restoring) or do I have to use something to make an image file or something ?

cheers

You'd start up from the backup and "Backup - all files" from the backup to the drive you want to restore to, using "Erase, then copy" or "Smart Update". Basically, you just back up in the other direction, just as indicated in the User's Guide under "Recovering from a disaster".
