    Ok, reading this post, i can see its possible to run Windows from an external drive...

    It said:

    My doubt is the following: I only want to run XP from my external drive, but i dont want to dedicate the entire external drive for it...is it possible to create a windows partition in my external drive (set it to like 20gb), and leave the rest of the external drive for my mac?

    I tried that solution a number of times to boot from an external drive/ install windows.

    It doesnt work.

    As for allowing / partioning your external. Might be able to do this, but your still left with the problem above..
