Keep me informed about the installer Falcony. I am just now finishing an installer for Porteus ... it was meant for Porteus v2 but we will push out a simple version for this next release. Maybe the two installers could be merged.

To make a bootable USB pen drive, boot directly from the ISO file and have persistence using grub4dos, see http://www.rmprepusb.com Tutorial #73.
The new Beta version is recommended.
