I'm moving from Linux to Mac (no Windows in this household!) But I would like to still have access to Linux while transitioning. I see 2 possibilities: 1] dual boot on my Macbook, if I can figure out how to get BootCamp to cooperate; 2] I've ordered a "hard drive dock" that connects via USB. (It hasn't arrived yet). Does Mac boot from external hard drives? For the first option, (usually) Windows is installed, minus drivers. Then BootCamp takes over and finishes the installation installing all Mac's drivers. Right? Can BootCamp install drivers on a Linux distribution? Ordinarily Linux installs all it's own drivers. Is that allowed? Or is option #2 the way to go? Thanks in advance.
