I have a external harddrive partition to 60Gigs. I would like to install OSX 10.4.6 to that partiton but as a physical drive not a Virtual Drive. Should I format it Fat32 for OSX to reconnize it? Also Will I beable to boot my computer and select to boot from that drive?

It needs to be formatted as HFS+ to install Mac on it. You should be able to format it from the DVD.



    Well, it was fun while it lasted.
