How can I get iTunes running from my external hard drive?

I have a mac mini running Mac OS X Ver 10.4.10. I have an external hard drive attached as the volume of music and photos was using all my memory on the mac hard drive.
I need to get iTunes running from my external hard drive and future updates of iTunes need to update the iTunes on my external drive.
How can I do this?

    Do you need the iTunes application running on your external hard drive? Surely you can leave the iTunes application (less than 50MB) on your mac mini and just store all of your music on the external hard drive?

    In that case, copy all of your music onto the external hard drive, then go into iTunes.

    Select all songs (cmd + a), then delete them (it will delete them from the library, not your hard drive). Then go to Files -> Import and select the folder on your backup hard drive where the music is.

    iTunes will stay up to date, and you will free up loads of space by putting your music on your external hard drive

    I don’t think it’d be wise to move to an external drive, it might cause some problems. But you can move your entire library to the external drive, which probably would work much better. Just copy the contents of /User/Music/iTunes to your external drive, and go to the preferences in iTunes, and have it point the library location to the external drive where the music is. From then on, it will read and play the library from the external drive.
