Painless iMac format and restore?

I am looking help with the process of formatting my iMac (2007) hard drive and restoring it with Super Duper.

Googling will give me plenty of pages on the backup process, but of the actual formatting and recovery I can't seem to find much.
I have a full backup, via Super Duper, on an external hard drive connected by USB. So now what? I assume this isn't something I can do when actually booted up in OSX, so what steps should I take now?
I should also mention another possible complication: I have the Snow Leopard upgrade, but want to revert simply to the Leopard OS, 10.5. Is there some special step necessary for that?
