Here's my challenge
I'm new at linux, hence new at fedora.
Here's the challenge.
I'm writing this on my mac g4 laptop (from a fink/x11/gnome hybrid) with an external hd on usb.
I'd like to install a working bootable linux os on this external hd, and then put in an old pc which has crashed hard after a virus.
Even the mbr got nailed, so i'm booting to dos from a floppy.
now the extra challenges. The CD in the pc isn't going, and the superdrive in the mac has just packed up, so i'm literally downloading ffrom the net, and trying to figure this out.
As a bright side, i'm running fink/x11 alongside osx (10.3.9) on the laptop, and that's the reason i'm getting into linux in the first place, as i'm throughly impressed with the speed and reliability i'm getting, way beyond the bloated osx trudge.
So, can i install linux in the external hd from a mac linux hybrid, and put it in the pc, expecting it to boot.
I've nothing to lose on the pc side, so if it means rewriting or reinstalling the mbr, that's ok, although i'm at a loss how to do that at the moment.
I don't want windows at all on the pc. just linux.
If anyone has any tips and tricks to achieve this, i'm definitely all ears.
