How to save live settings openSUSE 11.4?

Hi all,

I'm a complete linux newbie, and i'm running openSUSE 11.4 64bit in vmware to check it out. How do i save settings that i make or change in a virtual live linux?

I've read i need a usb drive, but need to partition it first in linux with some command lines (which i know nothing about).

The reason why i'm running linux in vmware is so i've got windows a click away, and i don't have to reboot.

Thanks for any help

Install it to the virtual disk instead of using the ISO or CD as a live disk. VMWare is more than capable of that. Then you won't have to worry about it at all. For your purposes that is the simplest method.
