Booting multiple images/virtuals - How???

Hi - been reading the instructions and searching within the forums. Found a lot of facts to answer my question - but not sure all of it put together makes sense - so I thought I would ask....

I'm trying to create several indepedent bootable images that I can boot into for different missions...sorta like seperate virtuals. So when I'm done with a certain virtual - I would restart and boot from from my normal internal drive.

I am using a bootable FireWire drive and since it also serves as a data drive as well, I tried to use the sparse image option.

So question #1 - can you boot from a sparse image, then process, and once complete - restart and return to main OS?

If so - how? My MBP did recognize the FireWire drive after holding the Option key.

If sparse images are not bootable - I guess I need to create a partition to place bootable images on - is this feasible? Can I move back and forth easily and keep both OSs seperate and independent?

Hope that made sense and any comments much appreciated.
