| 1 GB flash USB stick is expensive but not exorbitantly so, and has
| more space on it than a live CD. Colin, is it possible to get our live
| CD tech to boot on USB flash memory sticks too?

Yes.  It's a bit icky due to the fact that USB devices can take very
long to initialise, but apart from that, we're there already.  (And
the fact that I currently look for things which are cdrom drives
only.  That's easily changed, though).

| Would it be possible to have a read-write filesystem so you could
| store data on that? Would you partition it into a R-O bit and a
| read-write bit for personal data?

Oooh, I get to wave my «already implemented feature» wand.  Colin gave
the URL.
