Why are you using a 2-year-old version of ubuntu? Use 7.10. BTW, there are very many guides on the internet, just google something like "ubuntu on usb hard drive" or something on those lines.

During the install make sure you specify to install GRUB on the USB drive. If you need more help, we need more information.
