You may be able to, Ubuntu can be configured to run on a wide variety of hardware components. I also have Ubuntu 8.04LTS on my notebook computer, and will be upgrading my desktop (7.10) soon.

As long as your external hard drive is connected when you wish to use Ubuntu, and is a bootable device, then yes you can partition a section of it for the Ubuntu installation.

Once the parts are all in, you can continue with Ubuntu in the Other Operating Systems section of this forum.

For now, let's just finish these components and get the build working!
