Not sure where else to post this one... Currently running 10.5.5 along with XP in Boot Camp, as well as through VMWare Fusion. I've run a few Linux distros in VMs and from the CDs, but what I really want to do is install Linux on an external drive and boot from it natively. I've tried and failed several times, once even killing my Windows (love Winclone). Anybody succeed with this...AND have a set of instructions (for any free Linux distro)? Or can point me to an article containing a lot of hand holding? Note, I am pretty useless with the CLI and Terminal, so maybe that disqualifies me. As to why I would want to do this? Mostly curiosity, but I may install Linux on a used PC soon.
