persistent boot from usb

Hi, does anyone know if there is a way to boot Crunchbang from usb, but for it to be persistent? I want to be able to carry around my settings and preferences and installed software on a usb. I have managed it with Xubuntu and puppylinux but I couldn't find a way with crunchbang. I wondered if it was possible as I much prefer Crunchbang
Thanks,

Re: persistent boot from usb

Yeah, my reply was a bit hasty. I researched it some more and have to agree, everything I find online is for creating another partition for persistence.

Re: persistent boot from usb

It also looks like persistence in Knoppix was dropped (see Wikipedia).
