Easily boot from USB 2.0 drives on PowerPC Macs
Authored by: wwelsh39 on Oct 24, '06 09:11:25AM

Yup, I just booted up from an Iomega 250 GIG external drive which can be connected with either FireWire or USB 2. It's currently connected with USB 2 because I've had trouble using it with FireWire. It was slow starting up but worked just fine.

For the cloning of the startup disk installed system to an external USB2 disk, I find "Carbon Copy Cloner" easier (..& free) alternative to the mentioned SuperDuper. That is because Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) lets the user copy JUST the necessary files without the whole HardDisk (maybe I'm wrong, but didn't find such option in SuperDuper).
