Need help installing 64Studio on an external drive
I'm looking for guidance on installing 64Studio on an external drive. I don't want to modify my internal drive at all. In other words, I don't want to mess with the MBR on my internal drive, which has Vista installed. I've read various threads on installing grub on an external, but it seems that there is a lot of conflicting info and a variety of user experiences. My head is swimming from reading it all, and a clear path is not extant. I'd like to do a clean install of 64Studio to a wiped external. The installation could be set up for use on just one computer, if necessary; however, it would also be neat if the 64Studio bootup could reconfigure itself properly if it detected a different, compatible hardware configuration. So, my minimal goal would be: if I turn the computer on with the external plugged in, then I'll get 64Studio; if the external drive is disconnected in at boot up, then I'll get Windoze. It would seem that many potential users, who aren't ready or willing to dedicate a computer to a particular Linux distro would be interested in doing this. A simple step-by-step how-to might help boost use of this distro, especially considering the fact that 64studio is aimed more at music/media creators than Linux geeks.
