[nSLUG] Linux on Laptop and External USB Drive

I would like to install Linux along with the existing XP on my Compaq 
V2414NR laptop with an 80 GB drive.  I assume I have to maintain the 
existing Compaq setup since my XP reinstall is on a Compaq OS disk. 

I have 250 GB external USB drive which I plan to use to backup both my 
laptop and PC.  Could I install separate Linux OS partitions for both 
computers on this drive instead of installing on the respective HDs?

All suggestions, comments, warnings, help, etc will be most welcome
