Use OS X 10.4 on a MacBook that came with 10.5

Even ignoring the other comments, all of which I fully agree with, why on earth would you remove the internal drive of your macbook? if the computer will recognize the external drive as a valid boot drive (which obviously it does if it will boot from it) then all you need to do to get the computer to boot from it is either a) hold down the option key at startup to get the boot disk selector, and choose the external drive, or b) let the computer boot from the internal drive, then go to the startup disk preference pane, select the external drive, and reboot. I'm sorry, but this hint has issues on a number of levels.
