Want to just nuke external USB drive. Can I simply run DBAN from internal hard drive?

    I'd like to nuke one external hard drive only. I want to keep my internal hard drive untouched. Can I run DBAN from my internal hard drive?

    The reason I want to run DBAN from my internal HD is to avoid the scary risk of DBAN also nuking my internal HD!

    You can't boot into DBAN from an internal hard drive, but you can burn a CD then boot from the CD. Once you choose Interactive Mode, you can choose which HDD to nuke.
