How to make USB hard drive a 'Live' FC8?

Hi. I have used various live cd's and even installed ubuntu on my Dell notebook which works great! Now I'm into learning the CLI and would like to use a USB harddrive as a 'live' Fedora 8 distro that I can plug into almost any computer and use. I have found lot's of help for doing this with USB-sticks, but not so much with hard drives. I have already done one install of FC8 on my usb hardrive only to find out it's tied to the system I installed it from (notebook) So in essence I figured what I'm really looking for is to duplicate the 'live cd' on my usb hardrive so it will boot with any system that lets you boot from usb device.
All help is appreciated!
