Thank you all, I'm making progress.
I now have 10.10 on a boot-able USB flash and changes I make are 
there the next time I boot.

There's always a but isn't there ;/

On startup I still get the "Welcome" (sic) screen from the "Live 
install". The one with too VERY large icons. One is labeled "try 
Ubuntu" and the other "install Ubuntu" (with the same ugly 
background as the "live install" - the first thing I had changed ;)

When I choose "try Ubuntu", I get what I want.

Two questions:
1. How do I get rid of that first screen?
2. What should I be reading so I could have answered the question 
myself? I'm guessing that there is a script somewhere that is 
performing a function similar to autoexec.bat.
