javascript:emoticon(':?:')Hi I have a PPC G3 with 350 Mhz and a 500 Gb extern drive, and I was wondering is it possible to Install Gentoo on an external drive? If so tell me how, I was able to get gentoo on my Internal Drive, but it was to hard to manage I only need Gentoo as a backup system....[/url][/b]

I think you just installed it normally, selecting the device representing your external drive (/dev/hda, /dev/sda, etc.). I could be wrong, but I don't think any special procedures are required. The first step in installing Gentoo is setting up your drive, so when you run fdisk, just select the device for your external drive and use that device throughout the installation.
