When you find out, I want to do this as well...

If I learn anything, I'll bring it back here.

Please clarify what you want to do:

Do you want to create a remaster of your installed Lenny system

or

Do you want to run a Debian Live off usb with persistent home?

or

Do you want to create a customized Debian Live using live helper and have it run persistent from usb?

A god way to get information about this is to read the live-helper manual, in your case especially the part about persistence.
You should get all the information you need in there. It is an interesting topic, I never thought about making a live-image with persistence, I think I will have a look at that.

Doesn't latest Knoppix 6.4.3 LiveCD distro claim them can do live persistence on CD and most likely on USB too?
Knoppix is a kind of Debian.
