2 partitions -vs- 2 drives question

Okay, I have my 500GB OWC drive that I am going to set to have 2 partitions. 1 for a bootable backup of my internal imac 250gb drive and the other partition to have backup of my photos,music,movies.

Being new to SD, can I have SD just backup photos,music,movies to the appropriate partition?

Is it "better" to have a completely DIFFERENT external drive for backup of movies,photos,music than to partition a single drive?

added: Okay, I think I am going the rotate 2 drive method. I thought I read somewhere that the drives should be named the same as the source internal drive?
