Can disc utility create multiple partitions on an external firewire drive using a GUID map on one partition and the Apple map on the other two partitions?

I tried. After cloning  my internal drive to the Apple mapped partition I tried an option key reboot and the three partitions never appeared, even though they were on the desktop. Changing startup drive  in system system preferences to one of these partitions resulted in a blank screen. Had to power down and reboot.

I've successfully made a multiple partitian backup drive (same make and model), but all with the Apple mapping scheme.

Any thoughts. Thanks in advance.
