Curry,

While what you suggest might be possible (although I doubt it), I think 
your caution is unwarranted. Switching from OS X to 9 and back is very 
simple-just select the correct Startup Disk control panel/system 
preference and restart the computer.

Even if you could boot from a USB hard drive, the performance would be 
poor. This would be feasible if you had a FireWire drive.
