Fedora's Live USB-Creator? How are that one different?

Unfortunately I am too nooby to get such things.

I mean, is that one less vulnerable to shut down problems?

I have Ulteo now and that one has no such problems while
my wubi installed Ubuntu Hardy has.

the Fedora's Live USB-Creator uses Fedora 9 if I get it.
Does that one have less problem with unusual hardware?

I have intel chipset 910 in my Packard Bell Easynote A6
Laptop and I have intel 915 in my Barebone from Aopen.

Do I understant correctly that the Fedora's Live USB-Creator
need one to reboot into the usb drive so it is not really
compatible with using at internet cafe or at a friends computer
or at work cause why would they allow you to reboot?

While if you had an Ulteo VD on a mem stick that one works
co-linux style so no boot is needed. Like starting any
windows program?

Could anyone explain to me please?

Link to a Fedora related site?

Yes me have read several pages of text on it but it is
too technical for somebody not an experienced linux user.

Newer versions will almost always have more supported hardware than older ones (F9 should support your hardware).

Ulteo is pretty unique in not having to reboot to run it. I do not think that there is any alternative to it, if you cannot reboot.

There are colinux itself and if one set that one up proper one
can use it with any distro if I get it. Slim chance me as a newbie
could do such advanced things though.

Next is topologolinux and andlinux. Not sure which easiest for
a beginner. I read and read but fail to get how to set it up.

Ulteo was unique in that it took care of it all by itself almost.

On the other hand I am stuck with their progress in changing from
Beta II to regular distro some month or a year in future.

I'm in no hurry though. I have such a slow learning curve that it
is incredible I managed to get this far. Back in 1990 it took me
years to learn to set up an email account in Outlook express.

I had to use webmail for many years cause I had no knowledge how to.

I did install Puppy Linux 4.0 with SeaMonkey browser on a DVD
multisession style so when I log out it asked me if I want to change
shanges to the software and file me want to have next time.

A DVD having 4.3GB will last a long time and when it is nearly full
one only continue with next DVD -R and they cost about a USDollar here
so very cheap memory compared to a Thumb Drive mem pin costing 10 times

Puppy linux is very fast compared to a ubuntu live CD. Almost as fast
a my windows xp? I'm very sensitive to small delays but feel ok with puppy.
