You have to go into the BIOS with the drive connected and set it as the first item in the boot priority. It's usually accessed by pressing one of: F2, F12, Del, or Esc right as the system posts. Search for your model netbook and BIOS to find the instructions or post the model number/manufacturer here.

you can also press f9 when booting to select what you want to boot first.
