When Leopard comes out, I plan to save my entire HDD as a disk image and put it on an external hard drive (not restore it with the image). Then, when I install, I want to erase the disk entirely, then when the install is complete, I want to mount the disk image, open Migration Assistant and get my accounts, apps etc off the image.

I know that you can migrate off a local drive, but I'm not sure if it can be done with a disk image. Is it possible?

Yes. Once you are in the finder, use Migration Assistant and it will work a treat.

We do it all the time...
