Disk Utility for sparse images?

Thanks for the clarification. I thought from the FAQ here:

So, as discussed in the last entry, you can't "update" a DMG created by SuperDuper! with additional files, because it's read-only. However, with a few additional steps, you can manually create an image that can be updated by SuperDuper! just like any other volume.

Here's how! (Note: I'm assuming that you're using Panther in the following instructions... the steps might be slightly different under Jaguar.)

This first set of steps need only be done one time, when you initially create the image:

1. Open Disk Utility (found in /Applications/Utilities).
that SD! did not create sparse images (independently of DMG images).
