I'm not sure I understand what you want to do. If you are running a live CD, it does not make much sense to install SW.

I found:

it works with
Code:
1gb r/w mode at boot
then
Code:
./configure ; make ; make install 
and apt-get install
both work

Without doing anything unusual, any application
seems to be installable on PCLinuxOS2007 live
e.g. using # 'apt-get install <package.rpm>
(or with rpm command)

Limited by your memory, RAM only

Which ver. of MEPIS are you talking about? -- The "SimplyMepis-32 6.04 beta" mentioned in your link is obsolete since 7.0 has been released.

I use right now 7.0 and I loaded it with 1gb r/w. It's great, almost like an installed linux on hdd.

For users of other distros who might confused or interested, that "1gb r/w" is a GRUB menu option on the MEPIS 7 live CD which adds an "aufs" argument (aka "parameter") to the kernel line passed by GRUB.

The "aufs" option is not unique to MEPIS, it often works in other relatively new live CD's; just add it to the kernel line yourself. This may involve leaving the the GRUB splash menu & doing a manual edit, although in (recent) MEPIS live CD's you can add arguments in the splash menu.

I had impression that with it I could do:
apt-get install

:?

Of course, that's what aufs is supposed to provide:
