Unhappy Installing RH9 on an external USB drive


I want to install RH9 on an external USB harddrive (via USB1 port). I like to have a complete RH9 environment on my USB drive, so i can use this RH9 on any system I connect my ISB drive to.

But when iím installing RH9, anaconda doesnít recognize my external drive (I have a free partition of 4 GB), only my internal HD (which has a free partition of 1,4 GB). When I switch to my command line I can mount the USB drive, so the drive is recognized by the system. But not by Anaconda.!!

How can I solve this?
