Booting linux off of brand new 40 gig portable hd.
I wanna do it, im not 100% clear on how to though. I just bought a Seagate 40 gig portable hd with some spare cash i had, and one of my classes got my curiosity in linux. so i decided to spend like the 5 bucks to order a copy of knoppix, and what i was hoping i could do was figure out a way to either boot linux off my new hd, or run windows off my main hd. I haven't installed knoppix on the hd yet, and im not sure if im that linux savvy to do that yet. I also dont know how to reach my bios startup screen. Toshiba must hide it, so i dont know if I can even boot from a usb drive, but im assuming i can. If anyone has ever tried this before or knows pretty much what to do and wouldnt mind taking a second to send me in the right direction, id really appreciate it. Thanks - TJM
