Perhaps my answer on the list yesterday to Jim on the
subject: Internet with Debian could be of help?
First of all, I have another architecture (amd64) and I never got
persistence to work with stable (Squeeze).
But it works really well with testing (Wheezy) using the regular
iso-hybrid .iso image.
There is a link to a very helpful instruction in my previous mail.
Note that using Wheezy, the partition used for persistent storage has
to be labeled ´persistence´ if You use the standard boot parameter
´persistence´ (other options are mentioned in the manual).
