my way doing that...
Authored by: nick on Dec 21, '05 07:18:29AM

...uses CCC and an external harddrive. that could be an image on a networkdrive, too. works like a charm for me. and i don't need to reboot. i do even surf in the web or other stuff that doesn't touch too important files. i know it sounds risky, but as that isn't my only backup i just take the risk. i never had any trouble with this practive.

i never had any trouble using the external firewire-backup of my g4 powerbook with my grilfriends g3 ibook, my g4 cube, or the g4 and g5 powermacs at the place i worked for 2 years. ok. thats not true. i once had trouble doing that on a g5. if i remember right it was with osx 10.2.x just before 10.3 was released. 10.2.x had two versions: one for g3/g4 and the other for g5. silly me.
