    There's some info in this thread which basically says it's possible but fiddly - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=191777

    Not quite the same set up as you proposed but I have a very small partition on the Mac's internal drive for the Windows OS and then use an external drive to install the actual apps on. Works well.

    Little question
    is it posible to install windows on an external FireWire harddrive and use that to boot off , so I can play games from it and use my internal MacBook pro drive only for osx ??
