I believe the implication is that you use persistent as a kernel argument;

Eg. type `linux persistent'.

Is this a joke?! You have to type in Mystic Incantations<tm> at boot
time to get to use your USB key's persistence? Why not just make the
Live CD look for the device "casper-cow" (or whatever) automatically and
just load it if present and ignore it if not present? What, exactly, is
gained by making people type random crap on the keyboard at boot time if
they happen to want to save settings between sessions?
