Cool Need to partition??

I'm a newbie at this, so please bear with me...

My iMac Intel (10.4.11) is using 44 GB. I have a 1 TB HD (FreeAgent) which has about 400 GB of music on it. Must I partition the drive in order to back up my Mac on it with SD?

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not!

That depends. See "Storing a backup alongside other files on a destination drive" in the User's Guide...
