You'll need to be sure that it's not just the viewer that's on your removeable drive.  SL stores a mess of XML files that contain information about your avatar, your chat history, your preference settings, and many other things, as well as your cache.  If it can't find those files, it will be dead in the water.

If you get a message saying that it can't resolve the host name, it's probably not your system at fault.  That's a connection issue.  It may be a problem with your own router or modem. Reboot them by unplugging both of them and going out for a cup of coffee.  Then come back, plug them in, and let them re-establish an IP address.  If that's not th problem, then it's either your ISP with server issues or it's LL's servers (or something in between). Usually all you can do is wait and try again later.

At least on Windows PCs, some SL files are stored on your C: drive by default (under C:\"windows user name"\AppData\Roaming\SecondLife\ under Windows 7 and Vista).

You can change most of the subdirectories to another drive in the client preferences, under "Network & Folder", at least in third party viewers such as Phoenix. I have no idea if the official viewer allows this too. But some directories, such as the crash log and user settings, will always be on drive C.
