Boot Problems on LaCie Firewire Drive

Hi Dave: I have been using a 250 gig LaCie hard drive as my bootable clone for the past couple of years. I am running Tiger. I have never had any problem booting from the clone. For the last six months or so, things have been going so smoothly that I haven't checked its boot capability. But every week, I Smart Update the bootable clone. Today, just to be sure that I could boot from it, I tried to do so -- and couldn't. System Preferences recognizes it as a bootable drive, but setting it to boot from that drive results only in a boot from the internal drive. Likewise, if I restart and hold the options key, the only bootable drive I get is the internal drive. I can read and write without any problems to the bootable clone.

Any ideas? Somewhat troubling to think that I was protected against a hard drive failure only to discover that my bootable clone doesn't boot.
