Fedora 14 full install onto USB Hard Drive


I am currently using Ubuntu 10.10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad, without much issue. I have Linux installed onto an external, 40gig hard drive. When I installed it, it was quite simple; run through the normal install process, pointed it at the proper /dev/sda(n) and away we went.

I remember trying this with Fedora 10 or 11 and ending up with an unusable system. Without using a 'Live' environment, can I simply run through the normal install and dump Fedora 14 onto the USB HDD?

I am unable to use the internal HDD due to various reasons.

I am going to say yes you can. Not sure what problem you had before but since you did get ubuntu to work then I'd assume it to be fine. May be able to use network install or bko type install too.
