Intsalling Ubuntu 7.04 on Toshiba laptop USB 2.5 HDD
I plan to install Ubuntu Server version 7.04 on a new USB 120GB HDD I have purchased.
The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A100 Dual Core. (Intel Centrino Duo)
Laptop currently is running Windows XP SP2, which I cannot touch or replace for work reasons. I wish to run Ubuntu entirely off the USB HDD.
Will this in anyway mess up my Windows installation ?
I need to to be able to boot into XP normally when the USB HDD is not attached. However, when the USB HDD is attached, I want Grub to come up and and let me choose which OS i wish to load.
I have searched these threads and come across a few examples with problems in the above setup. Would appreciate if I could get guidance towards achieving my installation objective.
Thanks and regards.
