Hi,
I'm planning to make a bootable clone of my Macintel onto an external USB drive. I want to make two partitions: one for the clone, another for extra storage. If I format the disk as GUID, will it be readable/bootable from a PPC Mac? Or will I just have to use APM instead? As an aside, I was also wondering if a 12" Powerbook G4 (867mhz) had a compatible USB connection for my Seagate drive. Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks.

It will be readable on a PPC Mac but you will not be able to boot a PPC Mac. If you want to be able to boot both then you must partition the drive using the APM partition scheme and then clone each version of the OS X to their respective partitions.
You can boot an Intel Mac from an APM partitioned drive, but you cannot directly install OS X using the Intel OS X Installer Disc.
