persistent install on a stick?
Has anyone successfully gotten a persistent install to work on a memory stick? By persistent, I mean changes are saved when the system is rebooted. If so, what distro and is there a website with directions?
I have been trying to get up a persistent ubuntu 9.04. Have tried ubuntu's usb-creator, unetbootin, pendrivelinux.com, salvassn's queasy quagmire wubi approach. Either I get only a liveCD on a stick (not persistent) or it doesn't boot at all.
I don't care if changes are saved in an external file like a casper, or if they saved into the stick's filesystem as they would be with the wubi, so long as they are saved, and it works every time.
A liveCD will not suit my purposes, I already know how to make one, please don't suggest it.
Thanks for any clues!
