Making two Macs identical

I work in two locations several hundred miles apart. In each I have a g5 mac running leopard (slightly different vintages but handily both non-intel). Both do time-machine backups to internal drives.

I want the two machines to be clones of one another - so I can just work in either place with the same system set-up. I have a hard drive to transport files between the two locations.

So.. should I just clone the main drive onto the portable hard drive with superduper and then do smart backups at either end each time I move? Are there any issues with doing this? Will adobe cs3 cope with this? What about the time-machine backup disks. Do they need to be cloned as well?

Is anyone else working this way and what are their experiences of problems/solutions?
