I'd like to know if there are instructions anywhere for taking a Fedora installation on an external (USB) drive, and booting it from a boot CD. Basically, my BIOS does not allow booting from the USB drive, and I'm currently not able to create a /boot partition or install GRUB anywhere on my internal drive.
In theory, as I was able to install FC6 onto the external USB drive (Anaconda sensed external storage was connected and loaded USB storage drivers; I was then able to use Anaconda's partitioning tools and installed straight on there; however, I had to install GRUB onto the external drive as well, which my BIOS can't see).
So I basically need a boot CD that will use the installed FC6 kernel; an initrd with the proper USB storage drivers; and mount the root filesystem from a USB drive. As far as I can tell, this is not a problem given the current technical capability of Linux in general, and certainly not FC6. I have access to the FC6 installation on the external HD through the FC6 install DVD's rescue mode. There are FAT partitions available which I can use to store a generated boot CD image and burn it from Windows; I know I can access these FAT drives from rescue mode too.
Any instructions or pointers to something posted somewhere, would be nice. I don't need / want a Live CD.
