So I'm attempting to set up an external drive so that I can boot Ubuntu from it. I downloaded the 32bit file from the Ubuntu website and installed it to the drive using a cd. When I attempt to restart the computer and hold option, I'm only given Mac as a choice to boot with, then the computer doesn't acknowledge the drive as readable. What am I missing that I have to do?

I have a macbook with osx 10.4.11.

The external drive is a WD my passport essential.
