Well, no, what i really want is a portable Debian, so i can, for

Some "live" distributions have "USB environments" (I call them) which allow you to create a bootable image complete with a good-sized /home/ space for data on a USB thumb drive. An example is Knoppix (http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/), which has a utility just for that purpose. Knoppix is basically Debian; it is binary compatible. It uses the LXDE environment, which is KDE 3, but with GTK instead of Qt.
