Hey all, just had a stupid question.. I wanna use my external HD for storage on my windows PCs. However I also wanna start working with linux some. (Looking at Ubuntu and pclinuxos) However.. I need to know, will I have to partition the external HD like I had to in the past with redhat and fedora using a internal IDE?
Also.. stupid side one.. since I 1st have to boot off a cd with linux... vs boot from usb, will the live cds load the external hd and get it running so it can be installed on the external?
