Hi William,

I will address your email in more detail later, but I will like to
make a quick remark.

Doyen is created using Linux Live Scripts:

In the documentation we have this:

"1) persistent changes
Use 'changes=...' boot parameter to specify persistent changes
directory or file. If a directory is used, eg. changes=/some_dir/ and
the /some_dir/ is found on some partition on your disk, then all the
changes made to the root filesystem will be saved to that directory.
This works even if /some_dir/ is on NTFS or VFAT, thanks to posixovl
overlay (an userspace filesystem, already included). Important note:
if you plan to save changes on VFAT, make sure to modify your
distribution's shutdown scripts. It must not execute killall, else
posixovl is killed and everything is wrong. Instead, call the cleanup
script from /mnt/live/cleanup. If a file is specified for the changes
boot parameter, eg. changes=/path/file.dat, and the file has a valid
filesystem inside, then the file will be loop-mounted and changes
written to it. You may also use changes=/dev/sda1/path/ and
changes=/dev/sda1/path/file.dat ... to specify particular device where
to look for. Other devices will be skipped (will not be even

You make want to give it a try. I will try to document all this later
on (once I get to test it

Thank you for the feedback.
