I will check out the DSL-N.  I have been unsuccessful booting from usb.  Do
you have any instructions?  Maybe my hardware just isn't new enough to support it.

At this point I was able to do everything I need in Knoppix after adding
captive-nfs.  Very slick.  But I really like the speed of DSL and the ability
to customize everthing and store those changes on USB.  Maybe the DSL-N is
what I need.
