    Would it be possible to clone (CCC) a bootable HD to a 16GB memory stick.
    One small problem though, I only have USB 1 and the stick is 2 ... too slow? Or does "Bootable" only work with F/W.
    My HD for the moment is about 11GB my OS is osx 10.3.9 on a G3.
    Thought It "Might" be a cheap practical solution to back up against the possibilitie of a CRASH.

    PowerPC macs can usually only boot from Firewire devices and won't work through USB.
