For the long term, you may find it useful to split your internal drive into different volumes. For example, a smaller boot volume can be faster and easier to backup and restore. And certain damage to one volume that doesn't affect other volumes can be easier to recover from. The tricky part is figuring out space allocations to minimize wasted space.

So when you get an external drive you may want to clone your internal drive to it, then repartition and clone back to the internal drive. If you're interested I can post some details of the internal/external drive setup I use with my iMac G5.
