You have to first check in your BIOS whether you can boot from an external drive (USB2, USB3 or eSata). Installing an OS on an USB2 attached disk is no fun. It is far too slow and will work like molasses. Ideally you should go with eSata. If you do not have an eSata port, get a PCI Express card. They cost around $20. But you still have to check your BIOS regarding the Boot capability. If it does not work, you have at least a very fast port.
