Bootable partion on external HDD? 40 gb firelight hdd.
 
Is there any way to create a bootable partition on a external hdd? My external hdd is a firelight 40 gigabyte. any help is appreciated.

there's nothing to it really, you just need to add a bootloader to it, and set your bios to boot to it. what bootloader do you want to use? linux doesn't use bootable partition flags, that's just a DOS thing isn't it?
