My laptop has an eSATA port which allows an external hard drive to run
as if it was installed in the machine.   

If I ever need to run Windows, I will probably set up an external drive
and run it from that.  I have to check if one can run Windows from a
drive other than sda or hda... I am hoping one can.  I think just grub
needs to be on sda... or so I hope.
