Done a search but could not find anything.

Can XP be installed on an external firewire HD, and if so, how.

Thanks

Just thinking about it, you might connect the firewire HD to your mac and then install Boot Camp on the mac's HD, then it might be a matter of installing XP onto the external and rebooting to the external windows installed HD.

Sorry, but someone else here may know for sure about this.

You can with parallels, not with BootCamp
