I am new to ubuntu and i would like some help. I have a laptop with windows 7 installed but i would love to have ubuntu too because it's a great OS. So i would like to install ubuntu on an external usb hard drive (320 - 500 GB) and i have some questions about that :
- Do i need a usb external hard drive which will be compatible with ubuntu - linux ? or i can do it with any hard drive
- If i make a partition on it for ubuntu staff will i be able to use it and save other staff in the usb hard drive (movies,songs,documents etc) ?
- If i have ubuntu installed on the usb hard drive will i be able to boot ubuntu from any pc ?
- Are my changes going to be saved normally or my settings will be lost after shut down ?
Waiting for your answers, if something is not explain well tell me to try explain it better . Thank you!
