I'm running a Fedora 15 test image on an external USB sata drive.  I
formatted the drive as ext3 and copied the filesystem to it, and
manually boot from ofc:

boot u:\boot\olpc.fth  (or something like that)

You might have to tweak the olpc.fth file on your usb disk to boot
properly off it, and don't forget to update your /etc/fstab to use the
new drive devices.
