Booting Linux off USB pendrives
Can we install Linux on a portable hard drive and use that for booting? My laptop has Vista Professional installed, but I want to use multiple operating systems.

Usually, provided that the BIOS is able to boot from a USB device (as has been the norm for the past 5 or so years) and has not been set disable that.
If it does not do so automatically, you may have to change settings or press some key early in the boot process.
