    Question Live USB Xubuntu and run software...

    I'm dl'ing the new Xubuntu ISO and wondering if this is doable: The goal is to boot from a live USB and install software on the USB stick so I can take my environment with me. I run one windows program via wine and one Linux native java program and I use Firestarter to configure IPTables...

    Alternately you can do a Full install to USB.
    It boots a little faster than a Persistent install is more secure and is updateable.

    What he said. You should be able to just boot from one medium like a cd or usb drive and install to another usb drive. Just use manual partitioning and chose the right disk.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
