Hello. I recently purchased an HP Portable USB 3.0/2.0 1TB external hard drive (http://j.mp/f9FP4M). I'm trying to figure out the best way to format it so that my girlfriend and I can both use it. Problem is, I have a PPC-based PowerBook G4, and she

Hello.
I recently purchased an HP Portable USB 3.0/2.0 1TB external hard drive (http://j.mp/f9FP4M). I'm trying to figure out the best way to format it so that my girlfriend and I can both use it. Problem is, I have a PPC-based PowerBook G4, and she has an Intel-based MacBook. Hopeless?
If not, here is the ideal scenario:
--One partition that can boot Tiger (I still have the CD).
--A second partition that can boot Snow Leopard (just got it for my girlfriend).
--A third partition where my girlfriend can back up her MacBook using Time Machine.
--A fourth partition where I can back up my PowerBook using whatever means possible/necessary.
Can someone please suggest how I might do this? I would be very grateful for any assistance.
If any part of my ideal scenario has to be sacrificed -- I would not be at all surprised -- then let's forget about my PowerBook and focus on how to format the drive for her MacBook. I presume I would just need to do GUID, but I'd still need guidance on how to create partitions to boot Snow Leopard (and Tiger, if that would still be possible).
Happy to clarify any of the above if it's unclear or incomplete. Thanks for reading and for thinking this through with me!
