This is an install using liveinst in sugar terminal to the VM's Hard Disk.
It is no longer a live file system with a persistence overlay
All I am doing is copying the 8 resulting files:
 ''Soas-v3-Mirabelle.vmdk <- Use this file
on the 4 GB 2nd USB and running them from there with either VMPlayer or 
VirtualBox 3.2 for OSX or Ubuntu
The common interface is provided by the virtual host.

(Note: this also works for Windoz  XP Pro.: It does not need to be 
re-authorized as it senses no change when run on another OS and/or PC 
due to t6he common interface  provided by the virtual host.)

Please test it really works well.
