Yosemite Install Drive

Hi.
As the subject line suggests, I want to make an install drive of Yosemite.
I haven't a 8GB USB handy so partitioned 20GB of an external drive.

I'm thinking about using the "DiskMaker X 4b4" to simplify the job...

The question I have, is how do I download Yosemite on a system I don't want to install it on?
All I get in the App Store is a button to upgrade to Yosemite, I want to download the whole thing to do a clean install on an external Hard Drive. I want to build a eternal system to make sure even thing is working right before I copy the drive to my Mac's hard drive.

So how to I download the whole install, and not install it so that I can use it to create an install disk.

In Christ Jesus, Karl.

Just download it here.

It's 5.6 gigs, so depending on your connection it may take a while.

After it's downloaded, move it out of the Applications folder to another drive or partition.
