    I just bought a Lacie 250 GB Fire Wire hard drive. My intent was to back up my G4 on it. My brother suggested that I install Tiger on it and then install the basic files (system programs) on it and still have room to store all the pictures I am working on. I need a little better directions than he has given me. All he said was “put the install disk in and follow the directions”. Can you recommend a site that has more specific directions?

    Thank you

    Does that make a complete copy, including OS X? So if my computer crashed, I would have everything, so it would be like nothing ever happened?

    Yes. You did read the site, right?

    might be a dumb question, but does this require the same space that is taken up on the h.d.?

    Yes. No compression is used with CCC
