    Linux on an external hard drive

    I got a 120gig (111g) from Christmas which I wanted to install Linux Fedora. I tried and when I get to the part on what hard drive to install it on, it only shows my main hard drive and not the other. Is there any way to get this to work?

    Thanks,
    Jesse Smith

    How does it connect? You may have to load some modules prior to running the install if it's USB, I'm pretty sure you'd have to if it's a firewire drive.

    It's USB, I've installed the drives on windows, but not sure if there to pop up in the Linux install.

    Thanks

    Nevermind I was thinking you had a network attached storage device (Cat5 Connected Hard drive). I highly doubt yu can do a USB cold boot into a boot loader like grub, lilo, etc
