Perhaps I'm missing something obvious but what's wrong with clicking on the Manage Menu and selecting Set Startup Disk? If the External Drive is connected and switched on you can select it. The rest is fairly obvious.

Thanks, I was the one missing the obvious things. Despite using Macs since the first intel versions, I've never used that particular funciton from the system settings, thanks for the help and not pointing out my stupidity.
