SD for drive reconfiguration

Dave,

I think I want to reconfigure my drives and go without the sandbox for a while. I'm wondering how to use SuperDuper to make the transition as easy as possible.

Here's my current set-up:

Drive A (150 GB Raptor): Sandbox
Drive B&C (RAID 0 750x2): Full Volume
Drive D (Seagate 1TB): Time Machine
Drive E (750GB external FW): Full Volume back-up

Here's my desired set-up:
Drive A (150 GB Raptor): OS X & applications (boot drive)
Drive B&C (RAID 0 750x2): User data
Drive D (Seagate 1TB): Time Machine
Drive E (750GB external FW): partition A (100 GB) - clone of boot drive; partition B (650 GB) - backup of user data

The question is how to get from here to there with the least amount of hassle. I know I can use SD to copy the user directory alone, which should be helpful. Is there any way to clone the OS X install on my full volume to the new boot drive without taking the users over with it? Any ideas on how to do this?

Thanks.

Well, you could certainly ignore the User folder, but I don't think it's a good idea -- or necessary -- to put the users on a different drive.

Out of curiosity, why not a good idea? I see it recommended by lots of folks elsewhere.

Well, it's not a default configuration, creates a partition when it's not necessary (which limits storage flexibility), and doesn't offer any real advantages.
