Restoring from sparse image

I've gone through the user's guide and I think I understand how this should work but I am running into a problem.

I have a sparse image located on an external firewire drive. I would like to restore my system using that image.

I've booted off the Tiger install DVD and launched Disk Utility. I've opened the sparse image and can see that it is mounted.

Next I select the empty partition on my internal drive and select Restore.

Here is the problem: I cannot figure out how to specify my mounted image as the "source" for the restore. I click on the "Image" button and I can see the mounted image, but the "open" button remains grayed out no matter what I select.

What am I doing wrong?
