I have no experience in installing Linux based OS on MacBook, but I already have Windows installed on my Mac. I read some articles saying I can have the Lucid Lynx installed in my Macbook 6.1 and luckily I already got the CD (which was distributed for free back then haha), my question is that can I have the 12.04 installed instead of the 10.04 and what do I need to do that? I also would like to know can I install it on my external hard drive just like installing it on a usb stick? I have viewed the how-to for installing the Lucid Lynx, is it just the same? Thanks in advance!
To install Ubuntu n your external hard-drive live boot from your Ubuntu CD/USB. When Ubuntu boots up click on install and select the following option during the installation:
If your computer has only 1 hard-disk, then your external hard-disk will appear as sdaB Select your external hard-drive and partition and configure it as desired.
Continue installation as usual and Ubuntu will install on the USB Hard Drive.
