Question installing to an external HD

yes i have rtfm but none of them really explain how to install this way. do i go about installing the same way as normal and since there is an external hard drive attach will it detect it and will it give u the option through the normal Installation or do i have to go about doing this a different way. thanks ps. i am trying to do this with ubuntu

Hi GraphiteG4, Welcome to lq, I believe this guide pretty much covers it all. Just be careful during the selection for location for install, and where you install the boot loader and you should be fine.
Good luck. ;-)
