Personally when I tinker with things, I just install another drive. Most of
the time it's time to upgrade in drive size anyway...but I totally unhook
the "good" existing drive, install what I want, than reconnect the good
drive if needed. Or, just connect both of them and go from there.
(master-slave, SCSI ID's etc. must be correct...)

We have a main file server that's OSX (unix) server that the share is a
separate set of drives...the boot drive is the factory drive. That way I can
change the OS, upgrade, etc and not worry about mucking up the good
important stuff.
