When you get to the section in the installer that deals with the partitions, select "Advanced". You should then be able to select your external drive and set up the partitions on it.

Suggest you read this says ubunto but as the installers appear to be the same there shouldn't be a problem , very easy if your a newbie like me. and it works !
