Booting from another Volume on Tiger

The primary disk it partitioned into a couple of volumes.  I'd like to clone the first partition (containing the OS) to the second volume, and boot from the second volume instead.

How do you do that?

I already know how to clone the volume, just don't know how to choose the second volume to boot up in.

Thanks.

To change the startup disk permanently, use "startup disk" preferences pane in system preferences.
To select startup disk during boot time, hold alt/option when turning it on, and you'll be presented with a menu.

I've posted another related question:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Apple/Operating_Systems/OS_X/Tiger_Mac_OS_10.4/Q_24539868.html

Although specifically mentioned that I know how to clone a volume, the next "task" is related to that.

I consider this question answered fully. Thanks ShayanOH.  I'll close this soon and give you the points. Thanks again.  I'm keeping this open just for a bit just to tell strung that the other question I just posted is more pointed to CarbonCopyCloner.
