Issues in Duplicating Dual G4 OS X on to iBook G3?

My wife uses a dual G4 system and an iBook G3. She uses the former for video editing and the latter for word processing and e-mail, etc. Rather than constantly updating two systems. I thought it would be easier if I set everything up on the desktop and then used SuperDuper to copy the setup on to her laptop. However, I was wondering if there are any issues involved in using the OS X installation for the one computer on the other? In other words, do I have to install OS X from scratch on her iBook to avoid some kind of incompatibility in how OS X is installed on her dual G4, or will it work OK on her laptop? I did try this already and it seemed to boot OK - but I wanted to make sure before I start using this as a long term solution. It is very time consuming to have to update and maintain multiple computers. (Any files she creates on her iBook she stores to a USB keychain, so there is no worry about loss of data.)

In general, as long as the version of the OS on one machine was introduced after the other was shipped, you can use the same 'image' on two machines without difficulty (as you've seen).

Of course, in the future some OS release might not support the iBook G3... but that time hasn't arrived yet.
