As I understand it, there is a USB start-up disk creator in Ubuntu 8.10
and it does offer persistent storage capabilities.
I have not yet tried 8.10 but if you have esperimented with this feature,
how would you use the persistent storage - if you wanted to carry the
USB disk with you from PC to PC?
What I mean is that if I ran 8.10 off such a USB disk and created an
account for "John". So after rebooting the system -
Can I log in as "John"? (As I currently can running off the hard disk.)
Or do I have to do something special to save the session before rebooting?
