I have used the Fedora USB Creator in the past:

https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to...d_use_Live_USB

If you set "persistent storage" to zero then it will be like a Live CD (you will lose your work when you power down) or if you set it greater than zero, your settings/documents will "persist" (be saved from use to use).

Will that work for your purposes?

The Fedora USB Creator should work for CentOS too. (Fedora and CentOS are part of the same family). As I mentioned, if you set Persistent Storage = 0, it will be just like a Live CD on USB.

I just install directly to the usb. You have to be careful. The Creator programs are way more safe.

A usb flash is simply a scsi drive to linux (in simple terms)

There are ways to make the install safer for newbies. Be careful with a real install.
