Our live disk is somewhat limited in tis respect. It writes to a ramdisk which 
is set up on every boot.  This means you loose all changes once you reboot.

If you have enough physical RAM you can run gnumed's local database inside it.
Not every user's PC might meet the requirements but it will get better over 
time plus if you really wnat to see it look at the screenshot, movies or 
simply install it. Or come see GNUmed run at LinuxworldExpo :-)
