    External hard drive install


    I have an IBM i1400 laptop and am using an external 60 gig hard drive. This drive is where I want to install RedHat 6.1. I purchased the book titled Teach Yourself Linux, but the book does not address this issue.

    Actually, I'm not sure that RedHat 6.1 has USB support at all.
