I have a laptop on which i have already installed and using WinXP Pro. Now i want to install RedHat Linux 9.0 on an external USB hard drive (300GB) and also to be able to boot from Linux.

I have already partitioned the USB drive for NTFS and Linux Ext2 via Partition Magic. When i boot from the RedHat Installation CD the USB drive is not recognised. The only hard drive recognised is the laptop's hard drive.

Please, can you help me sort this out ??
