I am curious as to what advice you get as I would like to do the same thing. I did make a bootable clone of my internal HD on an external FW800 hard drive and the boot time was noticeably longer.  I suspect that was due to the FW speed.  Is FW as fast as the internal connection?

No, FireWire is considerably slower than SATA (your internal HDD interface).
