Is it possible to configure my laptop to look for the C Drive via a USB port. The idea being to have different operating systems dependent on which external drive was plugged in.

Yes provided that the laptop will boot from USB, check the BIOS.

Another way is to multiboot the laptop, say have XP on the C:\ drive and other op systems on the external drive(s), just make sure you have the correct drive plugged in when you select the Op sytem to boot from the menu.

Thanks for that - will check the bios first.
