External Hard Drive Dual Booting
I have a quick quick regarding external hard drive and partitioning.
I want to create 3 different partitions on my external hdd.
Partition 1: I want to install Leopard on it, and be able to boot into it for maintenance of my Snow Leopard on my laptop. Installation of Snow Leopard requires me to have Leopard, thus, I want to be able to boot into Leopard from my external in case my Snow install on my laptop gets messed and I have to reinstall.
Partition 2: I want to have a bootable version of a OSX86 Distro such as Leo4All on this partition so I can install on my other laptops without having to burn the distro onto DVD.
Partition 3: Bootable version of another distro, example: iAtkos...
Partition 4: I want to install Windows on this (if possible to be able to boot into Windows from external hdd).
Partition 5: Just free space for storage or something.
But over all, with my external, I want to be able to boot into Leopard (partition 1). But if needed, I must be able to boot into other partitions such as one of the distros or Windows.
If possible, I want to have more partitions with live DVD iso such as ubuntu, backtrack, etc...
So is there a way to setup an external in such a way to have this feature?
