Unhappy My

After several failed attempts I tried again today to install Snow Leopard to an FireWired external hard drive from my wife's MacIntel.

I get the green check mark at the end of installation then the obligatory restart.

On the restart the apple logo shows up and it sits with the paddle going and going then a circle with a slash thru it pops up on the screen. Oh oh!! The paddle keeps spinning for at least 15 minuets.

I then force a shut down ( pull the power plug ) and wait at least five minutes , replug the power plug and restart holding down the option key and selecting the internal MacIntel hard drive and get my self back to the internal hard drive of the MacIntel ( Tiger: 10.4x ).

The icon of the FW external hard drive pops up on the desk top. I open the FW external hard drive icon/folder and see that the only folders missing are the ownership folder ( the little house )in the Users folder.

Of course the ownership folder is missing because on the restart from the installation process i was not allowed to set up an ownership.

Is there someway I can use Super Duper to just transfer the ownership folder from the internal hard drive ( Tiger )to the external hard drive ( Snow leopard ) ?

Suggestions/help/advice please.

What should I do with the DVD Installer?
