Default External hard drive??

I was thinking about getting a portable hard drive like the one here,
but the one thing I'm not sure on is if i can install a program onto it but run it off of my laptop.
Any help would be appreciated, Schnide

Western Digital 320GB External USB Hard Drive, WDG1U3200WN - Wal-Mart

I bought this to copy files from a pc I'm selling for parts (dvd burner quit). Works fine for me.

Yes, you can install program files on an external and run them from your laptop.
