[clug-talk] Is it even workable.

Can anyone assist me here?
I have an older emachines 5310 laptop that has a fried hd controller. It
will run fine otherwise.
I have been able to install FiestyFawn onto a removable drive (usb) using
the standard install method.
Of course when the machine reboots it cannot find anything and quits.
The bios will not let me boot from USB (only CD). My intention was to try
and use a CD based grub to boot the install that's on the removeable disk.
I have tried using the supergrub CD and various grub commands to get this to
work but I cannot even get it to recognize the drive to tell it were root is
(my knowledge of GRUB is laughable at best).
Will this likely work? Can the grub somehow mount the external drive to
boot from it?
