Hello one and all, I'm new to the mac scene (sort of) and recently aquired a Macbook. My question is, is it possible to have a dual-boot system on the computer between the internal hdd and an external one. (think firewire) I know that it's possible with PC but I have NO clue if it's possible with mac. If more details are needed, I'll be happy to supply them.
