That darn reoccuring "unable to boot' question

I've looked at the other posts on 'unable to boot' and have no resolve to my problem. So,,

The external firewire HD is a Western Digital. The computer is running X 10.3.9. In the preferences panel on my powerbook it shows my older 9.2 that was transferred but not the 10.3.9. If I try to boot from the 9.2 on the Western Digital I get the dreaded X. If I startup holding the 'Option' key down there is no 10 operating system showing up. The 9.2 shows up but doesn't work. Wondering why it shows the older operating system but not the 10.3.9. Hmmm?

I understand that some external drives don't support booting on the Mac., but how is one to know (other than it not working) if the HD I have is incapable of booting?

Ultimate goal is to make an external mirror or clone that will boot if my internal HD goes belly up.

Any suggestions appreciated.

By the way, very nice program!!
