Installing Fedora 11 on external hard-drive partition

Hey Folks,

I am new to fedora and have recently picked up a copy of fedora 11. I currently use vista and linux mint on my laptop as a dual boot, but i want to install the fedora distro on my external hard drive.

Unfortunately, removing vista is not an option, and im very content using Mint as well. I want fedora on the external so that i dont have to keep carrying the laptop around. Is there a way for me to successfully install the distro onto a partition on the hard drive? it needs to be a partition because the hard drive currently has over 100GB of storage used up, and i do not want to have to copy it somewhere and back due to how long it will take.

Any ideas on what i could do?

Install Fedora in Virtualbox, get used to it a few weeks. Decide whether to install it on a HDD.

It's a Yes. But if you want to mess all up when you don't have a clue about what Fedora and Linux in general is, then by all means do it.

Or

Start by reading Instalation notes --- see top right drop down menu in the forums- Fedora jump
