I was recently graced with a Lacie 250 GB external FireWire drive, I was stoked, since I'd wanted to install Ubuntu, too hard to config to run pff of the firewire drive, so, I used CarbonCopyCloner to clone my internal HD, and put OSX and my files on the FireWire drive, then put Linux on the internal drive
One problem. The drive has been successfully cloned, but will not boot...
Any suggestions? :headphone

have you been holding the option key down when booting in order to bring you to the screen that lets you choose your boot drive?

Also, I've seen cases where it (for some reason) works best to first erase the *TARGET* disk using Disk Utility, and *then* use CCC to clone the drive."I'm the one that's going to die when it's time for me to die.

You don't mention the hardware you are running; some older Macs will not boot from an external Firewire drive.
