A few things here, xcaliber:

- Why are you erase-and-installing Tiger? There's no reason to do that if an upgrade works for you -- I'd strongly suggest doing an "upgrade" of the clone (if that's what you want), and if you have trouble THEN do an erase.

- A Safety Clone isn't a full backup, and that's important to recognize. In addition, because of data changes in Tiger, Mail is problematic if you're not using IMAP. Check out the FAQ about Tiger Compatibility for more info.

- Remember that if you *don't* use a Safety Clone, your user files aren't kept up to date on the clone. So, if you "roll back" to Panther by booting from the clone, you're going to end up missing any of the stuff you've worked on, since it's on the Tiger volume.

- It doesn't really matter, on a non-portable, whether you put the Safety Clone on the internal or external drive, although keeping it on a different device means you get to "multitask" the drives, if you know what I mean. But it works either way, especially consider the space you're using.

- You can certainly use Retrospect in addition to SuperDuper! if you feel you want/need "historical" rollback capability. But, most people don't -- so SD! would do you fine by itself.

Hope that helps -- follow-up with any questions!
