I am interested to hear the outcome as well. I believe Puppy Linux or Damn
Small Linux does something like this. I read about it a long time ago so not

>> Can someone point me in the right direction on creation of a bootable USB
flash drive Linux distro? I've used the Fedora USB creation software, and
LiLi and LiveUSB Creator, but they use the LiveCD versions of the distros,
so when you boot the flash drive, it 'thinks' it's running from a liveCD, so
you can't install software, etc. I want a distro I can install to a usb
flash drive, drop in my pocket, and use it anywhere I go, being able to save
files, install software, etc.
