Live USB Distro with R/W


I have tried a number of live distros on my USB stick but none that I have found have the ability to read / write to the USB stick, they are just replicas of a live CD distro. For example I want to save my network settings; download and save e-mails and save bookmarked websites from which ever computer I run my live distro from.

Any ideas ?

I am a relative newbie so if it is a matter of hacking a standard live disto then please do not get too techie.

Thanks

You need a distro made to work on a USB drive. The R/W made me think you were trying to write distros to a R/W CD.

Thanks but I have tried some (inc DSL and Knoppix) but none could write, for example, network ssid or passkey back to the USB drive.
