    I've got a 21-inch iMac (newest budget version) with Snow Leopard running Win 7 in Bootcamp. Just wanted to make absolutely sure that I can install Lion on an external drive without messing up anything.

    Also, will a usb 2.0-drive be sufficient for running Lion, or is it necessary to have a firewire-drive for increased speed?

    Thanks for the link :)

    Now I'm just hoping that an external HDD-cabinet with thunderbolt will hit the market :)
