i've done it. many times. here at work we tested it out going from internal drive to firewire, then from firewire to firewire, then from firewire to another internal mac hard drive. Each time we did it we were able to boot from the copy. it was quite cool. as for how we did it? im not quite sure, we used Carbon Copy Cloner, and we didnt have to do anything tricky, just out of sheer paranoia we only had the Finder and Carbon Copy Cloner running.

Imac G3 500 with External Maxtor Firewire 80. A look at my original startup disk with Disk Utility revealed it was a bit corrupt, so booting from the Firewire drive let me fix it. So now I can sleep soundly knowing my weeks of customizing X are not at risk. Awesome.
