    Hi pkmadhu,

    Welcome to the LinuxForums.

    Installation procedure is same whether you install SuSe in Internal or external harddisk. there is only one that you should take care before installation. check your Lappy's BIOS. if it supports booting up from External Harddisk ( removable media ) then you are good to go. select External disk in Partition Section during installation and install GRUB ( Boot Loader ) in MBR of External disk.
    if BIOS doesn't support booting up from External Harddisk, you have to create /boot partition in Internal Harddisk.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
