    its fedora not sure the version. The thing is that I was going to get a drive draw and caddy with a IDE drive and install it on there. But I dont have any slot bays left. So would it be possible to use the external case with a IDE to USB connection. Would I be able to boot up to the USB external IDE hard drive

    If you're suggesting that you are wanting to install the OS onto the hard drive that is connected via USB, I'd highly not recommend it.....

    If you are just wanting to use that drive for storage, then yes it is possible, but you would be better off using something like http://www.verbatim.com.au/products....oductID=KW571A

    http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

    I found gparted a while ago. It is an excellent tool for creating partitions. I had never created a partition before, but found this and partitioned my laptop HD in about 15 to 20 minutes. Very easy to use... the partition I created is still in use.

    The download page:

    This is the documentation:
