|The bit that has put me off that approach is the necessity to having to type in a boot option each time. is there no way to store boot options to make them persistant too?|
It is really a simple matter to edit the boot loader append section depending on whether you are using grub, lilo, syslinux, isolinux,extlinux, loadlin, linld, etc, or even the boot floppy and of course the media involved. If only a CDROM then use mkmydsl to simply generate a new cd image to burn.
However, note that creating a regular directories on a usb device will quickly wear out the flash device just as doing a traditional hard drive install would.
The default approach that DSL uses, only write once per session (backup) is still the most flash friendly.
