You did not sow confusion. My ignorance swamped everything. I have no experience with any type of virtulization.

In fact when I I initially read your post I understood it to imply that the flash drive could be transported to any machine. I did a Google search for "kvm qemu" {without quotes}. I browsed the first 50 hits without enlightenment. I reread your post and decided I didn't understand the situation.

you had said you pulled the usb stick out and booted another system

Thank you for the clarification.
