Distro for 4GB Pen Drive
I was wondering two things:
1) best way to install on a "larger" pendrive so one would NOT have to mess with a "permanent save partitions, etc."
2) best distro for HW detection, depending on "1" above.
So let me elaborate please...
1) I have a 4GB pen drive and have experience getting the Knoppix live CD working on a 1GB drive. In the 1GB drive, one basically copies the live CD to the pendrive and creates a partition for the more permanent changes. I assume the live CD's do more "robust" hardware detection than doing an install -- which presumably saves the current hardware configuration. Is this assumption correct? Should I do a "live CD/DVD" copy or an "install" on the 4GB drive? I would like to be able to "apt-get" install new programs without have to worry about permanence and just work from the 4GB pendrive as if it's a "real" install.
2) Assuming hardware detection is the same for "live CD" copies and "installed" versions, what distro would you recommend of the following (In my order of preference)...
I hope the above is clear.
