10.5: Verify partition map prior to upgrading

Not so. I just cloned my Leopard installation DVD onto an 8 GB APM partition from my CoreDuo Mac Mini running 10.5 in Disk Utility. That 8 GB APM partition now works perfectly to boot our CoreDuo Mini and our G4 machines, too. Leopard's DVD has special boot properties, as does DiskWarrior 4.0 CD. By contrast, cloning our CoreDuo Mini's hard drive to an APM volume with CCC resulted in a volume that won't boot past the white Apple screen.
