Suggest a lightweight live distro(Debian-Based).
 
Is it possible to save the installed software with all the configuration in a Debian/Ubuntu based distro? I want to have all my software with me all the time and be able to use it on any computer. If yes please suggest a distro and the method to accomplish this goal. the distro must be lightweight and be able to run on my old computer smoothly.

Specs:
Intel Pentium 4
1GB RAM
256MB Video Card(Geforce 5500)
40GB hardisk(But the distro will be run from a 4GB flash drive)

What you need is Remastersys:

Any Debian-based distro should be able to grab it from the repos, but I personally like Crunchbang for an excellent, lightweight, Debian-based distro:

Also look at APTonCD:

http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/

Also good is AntiX:

Thanks! I'll give it a shot right away.

The distros that are intended to run from a flash drive are the various versions of Puppy. Precise Puppy might suit you.

And of course, you have Debian itself:

http://live.debian.net/

It runs well on the computers at my workspace, mostly Pentium 4s and original Cores.
