I have create a "live usb" system.

Dowload here:

Uncompress it, use 'dd' to write it to a flash drive(256MB+ size), use
/dev/sdX not /dev/sdX1.
(winimage can be used for windows.)
BE CAUTION, the data on it will lost.

Then use it to boot a computer.

you will see three menus like:

Normal mode.

"2013-03-19-3.8.3-x86_64 [ Copy to Ram ]"
This mode will load squash image to memory, the boot device can be
removed after boot.

"2013-03-19-3.8.3-x86_64 [ Copy to Ram ] [ Local Overlay ]"
This mode  will write back changed data  to boot device, for now this
feature must be used combine with [ Copy to Ram ].
Note: the written back datas will be seperate for different computers.

I'm not good at English, you can get more informations by reading
/usr/share/mkinitramfs/init.sh. Good luck, Have fun.
