Question mandrake 10.0 boot cd, saving settings on hdd?

how can i save my settings onto my HDD using the boot cd with mandrake 10? i downloaded it and i dont have one of those usb key thingys! also, can i install kde onto it? or wait, does it come with it? and btw if i like mandrake 10, wat files do i need to download for the full version which resides on my HDD?

p.s. do u suggest that i download 9.1 or 9.2 instead of getting 10? this is my first time ever using any linux distro

yeah i don't know if you can write to the hdd in the boot cd version (might be possible mounting the ntfs partition -- but this isn't recommended) mandrake 10 on a whole provides a much completer expierance than 9.2
both are 3 cd's as well, so no real gain or loss there.
if you are an australian resident and on telstra you have access to pretty much any linux distrobution on
downloads from there come in at about 600k a second for cable but you probably aren't australian so it isn't much help to you but you might still be able to get files from there not sure.
