I have a laptop running XP. I recently got a USB powered external drive. I would like to install XP on the external drive, then install some kind of virtualization software (VirtualBox etc.) and then install Linux (Unbuntu preferably). I would then be able to use this bootable external drive anywhere.
Is this possible? Sorry if I am not making any sense but I am a newbie to all this. Never installed more than one OS before ! What partition type should I use on the external drive (NTFS/FAT32/EXT2/EXT3) ?
