Run Puppy via USB mid XP session

Can I do this and have Puppy save its settings back to the USB. I have either a flash USB drive or a hard disk USB drive to choose from. I would love to run Puppy without rebooting the pc. I have read that you can do this by installing to the PC's harddrive (it the runs an emulator?). But I want to do this from my pen drive or my external usb drive.

From what I have read I can install Puppy to my hard disk in windows XP. Puppy adds a shortcut to the desktop and when I start it up it runs via an emulator.

'Another option is to run Puppy from within Windows through its Puppy on Windows feature. Simply start up Windows and un-zip the Puppy file to install Puppy on Windows. Now there will be a Puppy icon on your Windows desktop. Double-click it, and into Puppy you go. Exit Puppy and you're back in Windows.'

If I could do this via my usb flash disk so I could use it on more than one computer without rebooting that would be great. I would love some advice on this matter. Thanks in advance.
