What does "update-initramfs -u"?

Wonderful, you gave me an idea. I'll have to give it a try next time.
- My Lubuntu is a 'real install' on a usb stick, but I am not
complaining! It is far far better than a live stick.

What's a "real install on a USB stick", and how does it differ from a
"live stick"? Do you mean that the former is persistent, while the
latter is the default ISO image?

BTW, instead of making the USB key persistent, I'm really looking at how
to boot with the current image, perform apt-get to add/update/remove
packages, save this running instance into an external ISO, so that I can
flash a bunch of USB keys with all my users need. Does someone have
information on how to do this with Lubuntu?

Leszek has replied to you better than I can and I am glad he did.
But just to add or elaborate, what I did was to install Lubuntu like to a hard disk but it is to a usb stick instead. That's the whole explanation.

The advantages are that, of course, there is no need for persistent or casper-rw, and things should process faster. There might be some things to watch out for, like setting grub to hard disk instead of to the usb stick, as some have found out.

And as your last paragraph puts it, that's exactly it, but correcting your word, it is not into an external ISO.

Giles, if you need further information, please let us know.
