Making a startup disk for dual OS G4

I intend to buy an additional external drive to make into a startup drive for my G4 running OS9 and OS 10.2.8.

I use this computer in a small business, and although it is behind the times, it works well for me. Yes, at some point I will be buying a new Intel Mac, but our economic times need to be better before that occurs.

I am interested in comments on how best to create that startup disk, what hazards there may be, and how to use it to startup once completed.

My reason for wanting to do this is that if my current G4 fails, it seems I could pick up another G4 to continue on with, but I want to have my OS and all software mirrored on this other drive so I can just continue with it after installing the software on the new G4.

I welcome any suggestions from the knowledgeable.

Thank you....
