I've pretty much given up trying to track down the parts needed to install an internal drive to my notebook and have reluctantly decided to get an external drive for the notebook. Before I order it, are there any pitfalls to installing VL on an external drive? It's not going to be a huge drive (probably around 250GB) and will be used strictly for VL.
One thing I'd like to do is have LILO on the external drive, but the notebook doesn't have an option to boot from a USB device. It's either the CD-ROM or Hard Drive. I suppose I could install LILO to the internal drive, make Windows the default OS for booting purposes (**shudder**) and just make sure the external drive is connected to the machine before selecting VL.
Any thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
