i'm trying to get a linux build that has the autodetect features of a

add users and apps like a "proper" install.
Numerous distros run happily off a USB key.
I've tried DSL, and it seems close, but its the installing and taking
forward thats confusing me (I like Fedora and yum - cant get to grips
with the module thing on DSL)
People have had success running Fedora from USB too, I hear.
The best place to start is www.pendrivelinux.com which has a bunch of
guides on setting up various distros for USB use.
THey do indeed, but usually its to recreate the LiveCD onto USB.
Did you look at *all* the guides on the pendrivelinux site?
The fedora straight onto USB tries to install Grub (or at least the
version i treid today did) and when you try that on other machines, it
isn't always the same drive order
OK, next suggestion: take a look at the SliTaz documentation at
where they talk about the use of their system on USB and the tazlito USB
builder. They say it also works on Debian BTW.
