Clarification of some instructions in the SD User Manual

I'd appreciate clarification of the following items from the User Manual, & sorry for any novice questions (I am one):
Regarding restoring from a backup (p. 26): "drag the file back to its proper location using the Finder" . . .

Does "proper location" mean the parent folder (if a partial backup) and the Mac's internal HD if a full backup?
The "Restoring from a bootable backup" section (p. 27) only mentions booting from an internal partition or from an external Firewire drive.

I thought is was also possible to boot from a USB drive on Intel Macs (?)

Also, which Macs are/aren't "capable of starting up from Firewire"?
"Once the backup has been restored, restart your computer with Option held down, and select it as your startup volume." (p. 28)

What does 'it' refer to -- i.e., what should be selected as the startup volume -- 'it' appears to refer to the 'backup' but shouldn't 'it' be the Mac's internal hard drive (i.e., since the restart is occurring after the restore)?
Thanks very much.
