I was able to install F6 on an external USB harddrive a couple of weeks
ago.  You need to use the advanced options when setting up the boot
loader (I *think* that was the step) so that it doesn't install on the
laptop's drive.  Or you could try disabling the laptop drive from
BIOS.  An added advantage - you can then boot a different system using
the same external drive (although X may not be happy).
