Installion hangs

So my hard drive (Windows 7 x64) failed on me, and I have since moved to openSUSE 11.3 live. I have a 250gb external harddrive with 2, 200 and 50 gb, partitions. The 200 has my files, and now I just want to run openSUSE from the 50gb portion. But when I try to install, it hangs when it gets to “Disk”. I disabled the dead disk from my BIOS and still haven’t had any luck. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance

Did you check like this

Ya, it see’s my external hard drive and doesn’t show any errors.

The external is USB?

Do you have USB booting in your BIOS?
