I've upgraded my internal hard drive once already for lack of space, but my iTunes library just keeps getting bigger. If I buy a 2TB external 800 FireWire drive, and install 10.6 on it, can my MacBook pro boot and run off the external OS?

Thanks in advance!

iPad 64GB, Macbook Pro 2.4Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 4 GBs of ram

I think the answer to your first question is yes, check out these pages for more details:

You can locate the iTunes Library on any Volume and simply add an alias to it in the appropriate Boot volume location - e.g./Users/yourname/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library
