Live CDs are great, but given the prevalence and cheapness of 1GB+ USB memory sticks (i.e., bigger than a CD-ROM), plus the fact that you can write to them, I'm increasingly interested in linux-on-a-stick. Do any of these distributions (or others) make it easy to set up on a stick? Some info on this subject would be very helpful. Thanks!

Info on putting Knoppix on USB flash here on the Knoppix wiki: http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/USB_Based_FAQ. My own remastered version on USB flash described here: http://www.beezmo.com/FloobyDustDir/FDKnoppixUsbDir/FDKno....

It takes a little effort but works quite well on modern boxen willing to boot from USB. Very handy for rescue and forensics.
