Hi

I keep a fullish install of F10 on a USB stick (8GB)
In fact I keep an i386 and an X86-64 stick.
I used XFCE but KDE fits in 8GB fine
Is it slower than Hard disk - yes - is it usable - very

I work from the standard F10 distribution and install over NFS
but a full DVD install is fine.
On boot install - enter expert askmethod and later select the USB stick
to install to.

Will it boot after install - yes if the BIOS support USB disk.
Even if it won't boot directly there are usually ways round that.

John
