Sorry, to put a damper on your thoughts here. My personal opinion is that the use of two partitions on your boot drive is of no use at all. If a mechanical failure occurs to the drive, the entire drive fails. You could lose all your data ... on both partitions. A back up made to the same disk is not a back up at all. A proper backup can only be made to a separate disk.

My suggestion would be to restore the drive to a single partition. You can do this in Disk Utility simply by enlarging the existing partition to the full size of the drive without the need of re-installing.

Then, until such time as you can afford a back up drive, use your iBook for keeping duplicate copies of your sensitive files.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
