    Hi Ken,
    It's the same as installing XP on any other drive.
    Connect your USB external drive.
    It will show up in Explorer as a drive or partition.
    Load your XP CD, select "Clean Install".
    When asked for the drive or partition, select the external drive.
    That's all there is to it.
    However, if you want to be able to BOOT from this drive you better make sure your BIOS allows it and is set accordingly.
