    just dd the iso to the pendrive raw

    dd if=slax.iso of=/dev/sda1

    you then have a bootable pendrive version of slax

    That doesn't work - The best way to install slax is using the included script. There is a DOS and a Linux script. If the partition you want to install it to on your device is /dev/sda1 then you can install it by changing to the root of the CD and running -
    Code:
    sh ./make_disk.sh /dev/sda1
    The install doesn't take too long.

    If your question is how to keep a persistent home directory and your settings, this is also possible with slax though it is a long time since I have done this so I'm not sure how it is done currently.
