USB configuration saving and remastering Q

I have puppy linux working on my USB flash drive.

Q1 After I get the desktop looking the way I want it, how to I save my configuration back to my usb? When I do a normal exit it asks if I want to save to an ext2 drive only.

Q2 If I install new applications, how can I "remaster" back to the USB flash drive?

Please note that using the hard drive in any way is NOT an option (this is a work computer).

Sorry usb is a black art to me but is a cd/dvd drive available as I use the multisession mode to save back to disk quite sucessfully.

Or maybe temporarily creating a save file to hard drive then moving it to the flash drive...puppy may then detect and run on the next boot....I vaguely remember first saves can sometimes be a problem

just a suggestion
