VL on USB Hard Drive
« on: March 07, 2009, 05:16:12 pm »

I would like to try out VL 6.0 but I have VL 5.9.1 running very nicely right now so I didn't want to install over it just yet. I have a USB Hard Drive (not a flash drive, an external hard drive) and I was going to download the VL 6 iso, burn it to the drive, and boot off it to install VL on that external hard drive. (or put the iso on the drive and do a hosted install) Then I could try VL 6 and not change my normal hard drive. But before I try it, I would like to know if it would actually work. Can the VL installer install to a usb drive?
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

VL 6.0 SOHO KDE-Classic on 2.3 Ghz Dual-core AMD with 3 Gigs of RAM
