Can't bootup from Rugged Drive SD clone

I have a PowerPC iMac (lampshade base) running 10.3.9. I have an external 320 GB LaCie Rugged External HD connected up to the iMac using FireWire 400. The Rugged is set up with two separate partitions: 1) a 268 GB Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and 2) a 30 GB Macintosh PC Exchange (MS-DOS) partition.

I used SuperDuper to make a clone of the primary partition of my iMac (100 GB Mac OS Extended (Journaled) to the above 268 GB. It worked fine and has been updating nightly using SmartUpdate. The LaCie Drive mounts fine (both partitions) and I can see the clone with no problem.

BUT, I decided to try to test the clone to make sure it works. When I restarted my computer and hold down the option button I never see the clone. All I ever see is the two partitions of my internal drive. I've even tried to also plug in the USB power cord (as someone else had to on this forum) in addition to the Firewire cord. Still it does not see the clone for an option to boot up. Am I missing something here.
