Question
Hi my OS is Vista and I would like to run Ubuntu 9.10 from an external USB 250GB HD if possible.


Past Experiences with Ubuntu.
I have run Ubuntu in the past both live and loaded to my laptop, I had a problem with Ubuntu on the laptop so I removed it and deleted the partitions, I reduced the duel boot timer to 2 seconds and I am happy with that.

Can be done as long as your bios supports USB boot.
