Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would suggest that if you are not very familiar with Linux that your first install should be done using a distro that is more user friendly, such as Fedora:

ftp://zeniiia.linux.org.uk/pub/distributions/fedora/linux/core/5/i386//iso/

    the scientific linux CERN 4.xx is build against a RedHat Enterprise 4 distribution and I recommend to get the documentation for external disk installation from the RedHad web site Fred

    Hi, I'm not surprised that you got problems with GRUB/external drive; first of all, is your BIOS capable to boot from external (USB?) devices? If not, you should prepare a boot disk (CD, to be sure that all necessary software fits on it) which will load kernel + necessary modules for usb mass storage and will continue loading the system from (already available) external drive... As about the problems building the kernel, please be more specific. BR, Petko
