Fedora on Lexar P10 32GB?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
never tried to install and run Linux from a flash drive, I know I have to make it bootable etc, but:

I am planning to install Fedora on a 32GB Lexar P10 to use on the go or even at home; the stick is on order and arrives mid August. This stick is advertised to be faster than whatever else out there for now... please don't comment on price/performance smile.gif

My questions:
1. Is Fedora (ver. 19, I guesss, installed on a laptop here already) the right distro to be run from a flash drive?
2. Since I suspect the 32GB stick is some 2x16 GB Raid0 type (it has almost double performance of the 16GB stick), does it matter what FS (File System) I pick for Linux?
3. Is there any issue if I partition the Flash - say, 16GB for Fedora, 16 GB for other files, tools?
Thank you for any advice.

1. yes, I assume you don't want it to be a livecd in which case you should be able to install to it just like you would install to a hard disk
2. no, not other than the advantages of various filesystems, if you don't know, then the filesystem selected for you is a safe bet (usually ext3 or ext4)
3. no
