    Installing Kubuntu from a flash drive

    I currently have a persistent Kubuntu 12.04 flash drive that I plan on using to install Kubuntu on my hard drive. However, I am curious whether I can modify the installation by installing and uninstalling software on the flash drive.

    For example, if I download applications using apt-get in the live boot usb, will those applications be installed as well?

    With a persistent thumb drive things are stored in a file named casper-rw.
    When installing from the drive, items in casper-rw are not transferred to the install.
    You can make a custom install iso using remastersys.

    Thank you! Can the custom iso created with remastersys be used for a live boot as well or is it just a custom alternate install disc?

    it's can be a live boot disk (that's how many Ubuntu based distributions came to be)
