Drive not recognized in Startup Disk Preference panel

Hi Dave

Using 10.5.2 on an iBook. Using a LaCie firewire external drive for SD backup. No problem backing up clone to the drive. Yet, when I select the Startup Disk in System Preferences, the bootable partition made via SD is not visible. Yet, I can boot from the external drive by holding down the option key on the restart.

Suggestions? Thanks
