Your post is somewhat vague? I assume you want to download a linux distribution and install it to an external hard drive? Any instructions from this programming class or suggestions?

I might suggest Fedora, SuSE or Mandrake. For Fedora go to I assume you do not a 64 Bit PC so download the i386 version. Only the fc4.discx.iso files. You will need to burn them with Nero or Roxio. If you do not have either of these applications there are free ISO burning software for XP since it can not natively create CDs from ISO images.
