    I have a 2GB flash drive, so how much persistent storage should I make? And....what does that hold? Will it hold apps I install?

    EDIT: also, whats persistent overlay?

    It should hold everything, apps, data etc

    Well how much space does the OS take up? Just use the rest for storage...?

    Wow, you've been all about Fedora the past day or two.

    I really can't answer any of those questions seeing as I use Ubuntu (Which is pretty much what I have said earlier).

    Just try Ubuntu! If you haven't, try it, and if you don't like it, forget what I said.

    I know, I was going to try that, but the Fedora 9 USB drive maker is easier

    Do NOT use Ubuntu, Fedora, or any Debian based system for a USB boot!

    They are entirely too bloated for a USB.

    Don't waste your time. Windows can't run off a USB stick.
