how to make Live CD data persistent

Dear All,

I am trying to use a USB pen for storing any configurations I made to my
working environment
I am using Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake).

I've formatted the pen with ext3 and added a label to it "casper-cow"

When I boot from Live CD I add to the command line the persistent option,
but the boot process seems to hang when it arrives at "mounting root" stage.

Could you please point out what I am doing wrong?

Thanks a lot for your help
