Can I install 3,4 persistent linux in usb memory?

Can I install 3,4 persistent linux in usb memory?
I try fedora, and was OK
I installed it with fedora liveusb creator-
What I want is to install ubuntu, fedora, puppy and another linux in one usb memory, and boot one of them. And all they persistent.
Is that possible? If that, how can I do it?

Sure you can...

However, each one has a different means of persistence...

I assume you made a persistent overlay for fedora when you installed it to usb?

Ubuntu you have to make a seperate partition labeled "casper-rw"ext2
or make a persistent "casper-rw" "container, which is a file of whatever size and then it's formatted ext2

Puppy can save to same partition

How big is your usb?
So, you want puppy, ubuntu and fedora?
any more?

get together what you wanna put on there and I'll help you hook it up?
