The persistence feature, e.g. the ability to save livecd changes to a
USB stick, is not yet officially implemented by the Fedora LiveCD
project. This feature should be ready for Fedora 9.

As soon as the Fedora LiveCD project implements this feature, I'll work
at porting it to the CentOS LiveCD project.
