Thanks you for your quick responses, Mark and Jym.

I am currently mounting the External drive without any issues (I compiled the
needed Kernel Modules in, thanks Jym). The problem I am having is that I want
to load two copies of Linux (test and development) as well as a Windows
partition for some proprietary apps our company uses. My development
environment is already loaded on my local drive (and I would like to keep it
as such so I can bring work home with me) But, I have been unable to boot to
an OS on the external drive. sfdisk -l shows the external drive and it's
partitions as sda1, yet adding entries to the lilo.conf file to boot to these
partitions does not seem to work. Will lilo allow me to boot to this drive?

Thanks again for your assistance,
