2 Powerbooks to 2 partitions on one drive


I want to back up both my powerbooks to a single external drive. The drive is a bootable FW drive large enough to hold all of the data and I am willing to partition the drive.

Are there any drawbacks?

I have inferred (but I am uncertain and haven't tested it) that only one of the partitions on the external drive will be bootable.

If only 1 partition is bootable, is it easy enough to boot from partition 1 and restore partition 2 to a powerbook.

Thanks for your help
