Installing onto an external hard disk drive

Postby gordon1992 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 9:26

Hi

I have installed Ubuntu, Mandriva and OpenSUSE before onto my external harddrive.

I usually muck up while editing the bootloader.

Could someone please give me some instructions on how to do it.

Going by other installations
Windows is on hdd (internal)
Linux is on sdb sometimes sda (external)

before i edited two files menu.lst and another one i can't remember what it was called.

Please help

Gordon

When i tried, i just created an empty partition on my external hd and selected that with the installer and i was done.
