    Debian install to external drive.


    I am not talking about the Live version here, I am trying to install the full system into an external drive.

    I have the Debian Lenny 5-0-5 DVD's but they are not live bootable. They come with a setup.exe file which copies over the kernel images to boot from windows. Thing is that at the moment I am running the Ubuntu distro of Debian and cannot use the setup to do it.

    Can anyone tell me how to boot this disk in ubuntu itself?

    Also does the debian installer allow you to choose which disk it installs to?

    (I am talking about the thing in the ubuntu installer that allows you to partition disks and define your own mount points before the install)

    your best bet would be to simply download the debian lenny bootable dvd's. but i suppose you might try to use wine to run the setup file. I am not familiar with this type of install though.
