new user for superDuper, pls help !

I have a imac with 250GB hard disk ( show 230mb )

I am going to partition it to >>>
main mac system 130GB ( all mac system+ application )
and 100GB for data storage. ( doc + files )

then I can use superdiper and mirror the main system to my firewire 150gb external harddisk.

after that, I can bootup my mac by external harddisk if there is any issue.....

after boot by external harddisk, all setup, program can run and everything is same and

I can access the 100GB data storage.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


pls tell me that this is OK and thanks

The steps are in the User's Guide, Peter -- the first few sections. I strongly discourage you from partitioning the source drive...

Yes. You do need to make sure you're properly partitioned for the Mac, though... you should use the "GUID" partition scheme, even for ONE partition.
