    Hey guys... I just picked up a copy of SL and have decided after I just got my computer back from repairs that I should probably have a backup of some sort. My question is since I'm itching to get SL on my machine; can I upgrade to SL now and then get an external and make a clone of my newly installed SL machine and boot off of it on a machine with like 10.5.8 on it? Just in case my computer needs to go into the shop again...

    Yes, you can use whatever Intel Mac you have got to boot into Snow Leopard.

    Use Carbon Copy Cloner for a bootable backup.
