That line says it all....want this entire operation to run on external solid state drive. What is the best way to set this up?

Depends on your OS, really. For Windows and Mac OS X, see this FAQ.

Do know that an SSD has a finite amount of writes and that BOINC will write to disk a lot. You may want to reconsider.
