I am using Windows Vista build 5744 RC2. Is there any software I can download that would cause my PC to recognize an external USB hard drive as an internal one so that I would be able to install Vista to it? Or is there any way that I could "tweak" the computer to act in such a way?

I've heard of people install Windows on to an external drive, but I've never seen it. And even if you were able to install it, it would be so ridiculously slow (USB) that it wouldn't be worth it.
