Making external hard drive bootable with back|track
I have a laptop with dual-boot ( Linux Ubuntu distribution & Vista ). I also have a 300 Gigabyte external hard drive with USB entry, usually used to store documents.
I'd like to make this external hard drive boot-able by partitioning it, and installing a Linux distribution, I'm more interested in Back|track 4.
I found the following tools that could help: Gparted to partition my hard drive ( but do I need to delete to current segment sdb1 in order to create 2 segments sdb1 and 2 ?)
And UnetBootIn to make partitions bootable with whatever ISO image (but I can't find bakc|track 4 on the list) .
I'd like to know if this the right way to do it ? or if you have more safe procedure ?

Make a backup of your documents on that external disk.
Then play with the partitions.
But if you ask for a more safer way:
- get a 8gbyte usb stick
- follow the installation guide on forums.remote-exploit.org
There is a section"backtrack-4-howto" and finally a post
