Hi, camner.

OSX cannot boot from USB drives, so that's why things don't work when you try to boot from the clone. However, once restored to a drive that does support booting, it'll work.

The slowness is because while the drive itself is USB2.0, your computer is USB 1.1, so things are running at 1.1 speeds -- not too fast. You're much better off with a FireWire drive, if you can get one...
