Is it possible to mount the
/home folder with all the settings to Linux running as a Live CD from a USB key?
Suppose that you have the
/home partition on the disk in the laptop and you want to run Live Linux. But you want to have your old settings. Think of it as an alternative to dual boot.
Do you think it is possible? Do you think it will be usable? I am concerned that it will be slow because of USB. What about USB 3.0 - I mean not the cheap version but really fast read/write speeds. Would an 8 GB stick be large enough?
