Booting from external Drive

I need help! I recently installed Leopard on my ancient PowerbookG4 and cloned the old drive using Carbon Copy Cloner. I set CCC to 'Bootable' and tested booting from the external drive before installing 10.5 and everything worked great.
I'm now attempting to boot from the external drive again (which was OS 10.2.8). The drive mounts onto the OS 10.5 desktop fine, but when I go to 'Startup Disk' in Preferences, my external drive is not an option from which to boot. Is there a way for my laptop to start up with the external drive!? For some reason the 'Contacts' in MSWord did not transfer to Leopard and I need to see if they still exist somewhere.
