Boot on removable drive

I travel alot between the UK and the Canary Islands and i have 2 seperate desktops, both of which cost a fair bit of money (both provided by work so getting a laptop wasn't an option, i'd explain why but the reasons don't even make sense to me) anyway.

I was just wondering if there is anyway to automaticaly detect a removable drive and boot from that whenever it's plugged in rather than the default XP drives in the computers.

If you need anymore info to help please say,

Thanks,

Chris

If :

your mobos have eSATA ports;
and the BIOS supports booting from them;
and the BIOS supports reordering the boot devices;
and Fedora understands the sata chips on the mobos;

...you might be just fine for a desktop.

Without eSATA you have to start looking at bootable DVDs, flash devices, or external USB, which are ok for trials, testing, or embedded things but a bit slow and frustrating for everyday desktop use.

You can download bootable fedora live desktop dvd's from the FedoraProject, if you didn't know.
