Hello juisaha,

Yes, for sure you can install snow leopard on your computer from and external drive. All you have to do is to copy the set up software that you want on the USB drive, connect it to your computer to access the files.

Open the USB drive and open the folder that has files for snow leopard, then look for the setup program which will be marked with a .exe extension for instance setup.exe and then execute it.

The installer will just prompt you through the steps which you will follow till the installation terminated successfully. The computer might ask to restart a number of times, so just allow it to do so.

Hope this helps.
