I have installed slax-5.1.7b.iso with MySLAX_Creator_1.3.0.exe on a Sony 4GB Micro Vault Tiny USB Flash Drive. It boots from any USB port on my desktop without difficulty. But any changes to settings of any kind, such as the browser, desktop settings, etc., are all lost the next time I boot up. Does this have anything to do with shutting down? I always grow impatient with shutting down, because the log off seems to take forever and just sort of sits there. I will say that if I log off, but do not reboot the PC, data is saved. But after rebooting all settings return to the default. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
