im trying to do the same thing with suse 9.2
has anyone tried to install grub or lilo on a floppy? i would try that if my floppy drive wasnt f%&*ed up
i also have knoppix 3.6 live cd(i know how to put it on a hd), ubuntu, mandrake 10.1, and fedora core 2 - but fedora doesn't have the option to install on /dev/sda so thats probly out of the question.
and i also cant install grub or lilo on hda coz im not allowed.
also when my computer boots up i have the option to press F8 to select boot device and my usb hd is there, or i can put it in bios as the 1st boot option.
when i press f8 what my computer seems to do is emulate that the usb hd is /dev/hda, but that only seems to be the case while grub is open, as soon as suse is starting up it doesnt like it and suse doesnt have /dev/sda for it to boot onto, maybe hotplug not started?
so if any of these distros are easier to go on a usb hd than suse 9.2 (which i would like on) please help if you can.
