Yes you can!(at least part)

You haveto install the applications on your hard drive, but you can install the content on your external, which is the bulk of the application.

For more info, go to page 12 of the user manual

Hope this helps,

Or you can just chose which applications you really need to install.

I end up using only fcp, compressor and soundtrack and once in a while dvd studio pro.

I never use LiveType and the soundtrack sample library.
