installing FC5 on external usb drive
I am trying to install FC5 on my external usb drive (as the title implies..)
At first I was having trouble entering the grub, but I think I got this sorted out - I reinstalled, this time changing the HD order, so that HD0 is my usb drive, and the grub now sits on its MBR. Now when the usb drive is connected, and after I put it as first boot order in the bios (After each re-connection is gets back to the end of the boot queue), it launches the grub console.
I have no idea what I should do from there, as I was expecting some kind of boot menu.
oh - I have added the needed modules using the mkinitrd, and directed my grub.conf file to use the new one. I've added ehci-hcd, usb-storage, scsi_mod and sd_mod.
My grub.conf file now looks like this:
Am I missing something here? what should I change at this file, or someplace else, to enable the menu so I can chose between the FC and the XP?
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img

Thanks for your help.
