Please advise on the best backup

Hi i am new to SD (as i am evaluating it) at this moment it looks very promising!

Below is what i am using for the evaluation:

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (APR'09):
With 2 partitions, one for the OS (Snow Leopard) and one for DATA

Freecom USB 2.5" 250GB External Harddrive
With 3 partitions, one with a copy of the SL Installer DVD, one OSX (10.5.8) Boot partition (with SuperDuper installed), and one for Data.

Can i create a backup (read only image) of Snow Leopard boot up partition on the MacBook Pro, when i bootup from my external USB HD.

Or should i boot from my MacBook (SL), install and run SuperDuper from there and do the backup?

Thanx for your advise
