Hello! This is my first post on this forum. For lack of a better segue, I'm going to get right to my question. I have a pen drive (64 GB) which I plan to use for Ubuntu. I used the pen drive linux installer (as recommended here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/create-a-usb-stick-on-windows ). However this is just the "Live CD" version of Ubuntu. I want to actually install the operating system on the pen drive, rather than just have a bootable "live cd" version of it. Unfortunately I don't know much about making USB drives bootable. Currently any changes I make are lost as soon as I restart the computer. I would like the OS to recognize changes, just as it would if it were installed on a hard drive. Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

Also, I don't know how to terminate the URL on these forums, so it seems as though that entire paragraph following http:// was linkified.
