Default making a boot disc/dual operating systems

I am currently running pt 6.4 on os 10.3.8 I would like to make a start up drive with 10.3.9 in order to run applications that requuire quicktime 7.
Does anyone have any experience with this? What issues might I run into and what is the best procedure for getting this done? Thanks for your help.

Default Re: making a boot disc/dual operating systems

You can create another volume, and install 10.3.9. Then use startup disk to choose between the two.

If you need to copy your current system for transfer or backup you can use Carbon Copy Cloner (my preference with Panther) or the restore function in Disk Utility. I prefer CCC because it doesn't require you to copy the free space of the source volume like restore.

I always keep a clone of my boot volume on another drive for data security, and running disk utilities/repairing permissions. Much faster, and easier than booting from a CD/DVD.
