Yes I realize this subject is brought up many times, I however am trying to do something a little different.
I know there are boot from flashdrive, live cd's and such. I was wondering how I would boot my Suse Linux Enterprise 10 (either server or desktop is ok) without an internal hard drive but rather using an external hard drive as my main drive.
specs of what i have:
SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 (both server and desktop editions)
SUSE Linux 10 standard edition (both the DVD and 6 CD set)
Via Epia CN13000g main board (mini-ITX form factor)
the mb has integrated audio, video and processor is VIA 1.3 GHz C7
512 RAM for the mb
40GB Fantom Drive External Hard Drive
Phillips DVD writer (so my dvd's will work
(not that it's important) Morex 3688B w/80watt psu
monitor, mouse, and keyboard
I have no internal hard drive right now (and if possible wont get one as it saves me money i don't have)
on another note this is for a senior capstone project, I could get bonus points if I get it to work without an internal hard drive (well ok not bonus points but it would impress the people grading the project)
