Question Installing Jolicloud to USB?


Jolicloud won't support or help, which I feel is ridiculous.

I have a HP thin client that i'd love to use in the kitchen or similar. Would be even more ideal if I could use a touchscreen with it, but i digress.

The thin client only has 1 GB of flash memory. What i'd like to do is install the distro to a USB flash card, and boot to USB, running jolicloud from the usb and using the USB as the default storage device for the OS. a 4GB or 8GB card.

Does anyone have any input, experience, suggestions, or thoughts?

Nope.. that is how to install from a usb key. Not install TO a usb. I want a live usb.

As I said, Jolicloud doesn't support it - so you won't find it on their site, which is why i'm here.
