How to Restore Under Leopard?

I've been having some of the same problems others have had after trying to restore a drive using SD under Leopard -- i.e., severely messed-up permissions on restored drive, etc. (didn't know there were compatibility issues with SD and Leopard). So my question is, what is the best way to try to restore my hard drive to working condition. I have two SD backed-up versions of my drive: one 10.4.10 version from right before I upgraded to Leopard, and one 10.5.1 version from a couple of days ago. When I first ran into trouble with the hard drive on my MBP, I tried doing a clean erase/install of Leopard on my MBP, and then smart-updating from my SD back-up copy (of the 10.5.1 drive). The update goes through, but almost every application I try to open comes up with weird, permission-related error messages. If I go back and do another clean install of Leopard, is there any way to get my applications and user files back onto the restored drive without replicating this permission problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can clean install Leopard and then migrate from the Tiger copy.

How would I restore my applications under that process -- I have to do more than just copy the applications folder from the Tiger backup, don't I?

Migration does copy over the applications.

The migration from Tiger to Leopard was the easiest/most complete ever (390+ apps and utilities, 78 GB overall). I basically have two machines that are the same (long story). One I did migration from my external into a clean install. On the other I just popped in the Leopard DVD and hit update.

No luck with that fix. Did a clean erase and install of Leopard, then used Migration Assistant to migrate my backed-up Tiger files onto the new Leopard drive. It copies everything, but almost nothing opens correctly -- e.g., permission-related error messages when trying to open Photoshop CS3, MS Word, Entourage, Firefox. iTunes.

Doesn't seem possible that the problem could still exist, but it does.

One thing I'll mention is that my MBP hard drive is partitioned into a Mac HD and a Windows HD. I've just erased the Mac HD when doing the clean install, since I didn't want to have to restore everything on the Windows side as well. Is there any reason to believe something on the Windows partition could still be having an effect on the Mac partition even after running the clean install?
