creating a system files on an external drive
I have a problem modifying a partition on my external drive :
I had linux installed on my laptop's internal drive and a FAT32 system fileon my external drive (it is an external drive that is connected to my pc via a pc card).
As I wanted to remove windows, i have tried to replace my fat32 partition by a linux ext3 partition. Now, it seems that when linux is booting, the ext drive is not yet connected and the system tries to find the external's drive system files. As it cannot find it, I can't boot into linux.
Does anyone know what type of partition I have to create on my external drive so that linux launches ?
thanks very much for your help.
