Specs: linux, Core Due / 512 MB
I want to install one Linux distro in my external HHD.
My moto is to experiment these ,
1)Want to try something else other than Fedore(since using already)
2)Bootable external hdd, (300 GB)
3)Make own live CD/DVD (currently using knoppix)
4)Make Live usb (4GB )(I have no idea, Item 2 will be machine specific or work as live USB)
5)Connect internet through USB wireless modem(Reliance ZTE)
Initially I was thinking of SuSe for installing in external hdd, but later I found more support in net for making live cd/ USB in Ubunto. I tried Ubunto 9.10 as live CD, but fond it is very – very slow, while knoppix 5.3 is much faster in booting. Is it slow even from hdd booting or it is only live cd have this problem ?
Again I have no idea, if installing linux in external hdd will work like live USB or it is machine specific (if not then this will solve my request no 4 also )
Then in last my main issue is to connect USB modem in live cd / usb , I already tried with Knoppix which works once successfully but after that linux start recognizing it as usb hdd instead of usb modem
I found few solution for this in net but no success yet for me.
So I want to start this experiment step by step, therefore I need expert comments before starting from the forum experts.

Which distro will be good for above list of tasks.

With regards

I'm using OpenSuSE Linux for a while, but never tried to make a live cd by myself.
But you can download a live cd of OpenSuSE Linux and test, whether your USB modem is recognized correctly or not.

Almost every one of the top 30 distro's can do all that. All can be remastered, boot from external and almost all have a live cd.

If you want to learn consider maybe these choices not in order.
Gentoo, linux from scratch, slackware, debian.
