Yet another partition scheme question

I'm sure you get tired of GUID vs. APL partition scheme ?'s, but here goes.

If I want to back up data (not make a bootable drive) between a partition on a drive formatted GUID and another partition on a 2nd drive formatted APL, are there any special precautions I need to take when using SD! ?

Specifically, can I use SD! residing on an Intel, SD! residing on a PPC, or SD! residing on either backup to copy data between the two differently-formatted drives? I want to be able to access the data with both a PPC and an Intel.

Thanks.

No, no precautions. It doesn't matter. And both Macs can read both GUID and APM partitioned volumes, assuming a Tiger-or-later OS>

how about panther?

My two oldest computers are running Panther and have modest memory and speed, so I'm not likely to upgrade them to Tiger. Will they read data stored on a GUID partitioned disk?

I don't think they will, no.
