I want to install Fedora Core 3 on a external USB drive (Seagate Ultra ATA Internal Drive in an USB enclosure)
I have dell inspirion 600 and it has BIOS option to boot from USB device.
After switching on my Laptop, I changed the First-boot option to CD/DVD and inserted the bootable Fedora Core 3 dvd. The boot process works fine and I can get into the graphical installation process.
The graphical installation menu does not show me the external USB drive
on which I could partition and install fedora on to.
My main question is..How do I get the installation utility to recognize the external USB drive is connected?
I read on some forum that USB mass storage devices in Linux are treated as SCSI devices. How do I get the SCSI emulation of USB mass storage to work during the installation process?
so that my USB mass storage device is available for partition and install.
I have a microsoft USB optical wireless mouse, which works just fine in the graphical Installation.
When I check the boot messages (dmesg), all i see is
SCSI subsystem initialized
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
..scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
, which I suppose should come up during the installation.
Any kind of help would be appreciated.
