Question One Last OS9 Disc Question

I hope this is not off topic, but there appear to be several others, like myself, still having to deal with a System 9 computer with a disc in need of cloning prior to moving to Tiger.

I have a G4 (AGP Graphics) that I need to bring online with Tiger. But it currently is running 9.2.2 with some very important software that I would like to archive and be able to return to, if necessary, after installing Tiger.

From previous posts, I detect that cloning the 9.2.2 disc with all of its supporting software by using target disc mode and SuperDuper! on my Powerbook to an external firewire drive may or may not achieve what I would like...a reinstallable, or preferably a 'bootable' disc of this 9.2.2 hard drive in the G4 on an external firewire fact, in one post I believe you recommended using a system 9 solution for this.

Outside of Silverkeeper, I know of no other program that is still available to do this job in 9. Will Apple's own Disc Copy software create a fully bootable clone or only a disc image that could be reinstated. (And does it copy invisible files to the image?)

Do you still feel this might best route to archive this disc?
