    Hi

    Will WOW install and run from an external usb 2 drive ?
    Would that drive be interchangeable between Tiger and Leopard systems ?


    Thanks

    Really would not do this.

    Performance would be down the toilet.

    Buy a big external FW drive , move your iTunes folder/ pictures/ movies on to that and with the new space install WOW.

    I would not use a usb 2.0 drive, but a firewire 800 drive would be fine. I run all my games off a WD MyBook Pro in bootcamp. TF2, HL2, Trackmania, etc.. all run great which virtually no performance hit.
