re: How To Run Linux From A USB Flash Drive
Geez, talk about giving away all the tricks...

Something that should be considered are the security implications, as well as the data recovery opportunities, that having a USB flash drive that you can boot Linux up from introduces.

I created my first Linux Flash Drive a few years ago and have successfully used it in many instances to bypass security on boxes (all white-hat stuff, mind you) and to recover files from systems that would no longer boot before re-imaging them. That made a tool of this nature invaluable to me.
