Yes you can. If you have your chosen LiveCD/DVD image to hand, you can put it on a memory stick and create an overlay filesystem which stores changes from the original disk image.
There are loads of ways and tools to do this. The one I use is the Fedora LiveUSB Creator. It's part of the Fedora tools, but it'll write any live CD image you have available and it'll create an overlay filesystem of the size you specify. And they've got a version for the major commercial OS too. And its wholly free Open Source, in line with the Fedora project's principles.
There are other tools that do the same thing - I believe the Debian has one too.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
