It is somewhat difficult to determine exactly what you like to do.
Installing a Linux distro on the external HD , generally speaking yes it
is.
Windows ME and Win98 can only be installed on C: drive and that is almost
always the internal drive
You have also to decide where to install GRUB of the linux distro
