    So you are expecting changes to be saved on a read/write cd??? That is funny and completely impossible.
    dd if=/dev/swc666 of=/dev/wyze

    ya your working from a live cd.. use the search button and read up on a HDD or USB install than you will be able to save your changes

    You have to have a device to save changes .. usb hdd , flash drive , etc , etc .. If you want to run the live cd and save your changes you have to have a partition formatted as ext2 . in that partition you have to make a changes folder (X:changes) then reboot and run the cd.. when the menu comes up you have to add this at the end of the Kernel line and before the Autoexec command add "changes=/dev/sdaX rw" where X is the drive where you made the ext2 partition with the changes folder.. Everytime you boot without installing to a hdd your going to have to modify the boot loader and have that partition connected .

    Isn't it possible to edit the boot loader before burning the disc? Meaning, couldn't someone just download the ISO, open the ISO with a mounting app then edit/add the files they need and then burn the image. I don't know an in depth amount about Linux or BT3, but it seems this should be possible.

    Almost like cooking a ROM for a cell phone. Or is this method frowned upon?

    In the end I just saved to my USB drive, but the idea is still interesting.

    Setup:
    HP zv6000 (with crappy built in Broadcom wireless chipset)
    Negear WG511T with Atheros chipset (works with BT3)
    256MB USB stick

    Actually, I would like to know a bit about this stuff too. I am not sure if this is anything like the original question of the post, but I hope through my question I can contribute in some fashion.

    I would like to know how to save files, or run files. Necessarily without having to install backtrack, yet I would like to access my USB drive, and run my python, perl, (list goes on) files from there. At the same token save to it too.

    I hope this makes sense. In other words, I have my bt3 running from a ISO, and a thumbdrive filled with files.

    I guess the question is, is it possible to read and write to the usb, without having to install bt3 itself, if so, what would be the appropriate steps to this answer?

    I would like to thank everyone in advanced for their most expedient response to my question.
