Question Installing Linux on USB External Harddisk compatible to HP Laptop


Hello,
I have a HP Laptop with windows ME installed on it.
I just want a way to install Linux on an external HDD and configure it with a dual boot option.

Can I install it on USB Ext HDD (which I think is much safer in terms of portability rather than the normal External IDE HDD).

Let me know if you have any comments / suggestions.

Thanks.
