Best Distro for external hard drive?


Hi,

I need some help from people who know...
I wanted to install Linux (best for this purpose) on an external hard drive so that I can plug it in at home and at work when needed.
Can someone tell me what would be the best Distro for that purpose and if there is anything else I should know to make my life easier? Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Neb
