Again thanks for the coaching, Sensei... (writing from work , pardon dis-jointedness)

Glad to hear that the Mini's Tiger boot disks will WORK as things to boot the Ti-book from (I was worried that they might be Mini-HW-specific. Natch I will be buying a legally licensed copy of Tiger.

The LaCie partition holding the Ti-PbG4's disk contents is called something like backTI-HD74Bg and the internal HD is named something like TI-HD so their names are different. The files on its backup partition are, of course, named exactly the same, but their aliases might well point back to the base HD, which I suppose (by what you point out) is a Bad Thing.

So I guess the safest procedure you're recommending is to boot with either the Tiger or the Panther CDs, somehow use either of thoseCDs to zero out the internal HD (is that via Disk Utility or via Restore without archiving old files, which will fmt the Ti-book's HD?), then boot with either a Panther or Tiger CD, use Disk Utility to see the ext HD, and then run SD! from that partition to copy its own image back to the Ti-Book's HD... Do I gots that right or should I just re-read what you said earlier (sometimes I get so lame-o when tryin g to work and post into tech BBSes at the same time) .
