Okay, so do you mean that you are actually installing your system to a USB 
stick, or that you are copying the iso image to it, and using it to boot like 
a live CD or DVD? 

I did a quick search (in response to your earlier question), and it seemed to 
indicate that "Persistent Changes" had something to do with running a live 
system. I don't normally run a live disc, except sometimes for 
troubleshooting; I generally go straight to installation. 

And what I described about installing to a USB stick meant that I actually run 
my computer from the USB. My aim is to have a complete bootable, running 
system, along with a home folder, on a flash drive; so that I can take it 
anywhere and (theoretically, at least) boot almost any computer with it. 

When I boot up, I never see "Persistent Changes" in my menu choices (although 
I've heard about it). I can do a little research and see what I discover. 
Once I sort out my desktop, I can try installing Slax a USB, then see if I 
can figure out how "Persistent Changes" works.
