I'm trying to get Linux to run on a laptop using a external 20G USB Hardrive.
Laptop AMD3200 Simperon 1.25G Ram (HP pavilion zv6000)
1) Can't touch Internal HD, so no GRUB or LiLo on that drive.
2) Tried SuSE 10, got it installed, but will not boot, every time I try to boot just from the USB drive, the screen goes black & displays "GRUB ", no curser, no keyboard responce or anything.
3) If I boot from CD, then go to install, boot from HD, it will then run fine.
What versions of Linux can handle booting from USB (The SuSE forums were telling me that SuSE wont boot from a USB Drive :( )
Thank you for any help you can provide.
Rember. I can't install anything to the internal HD, no boot loaders or anything.
