Create a Live usb w/Persist from a Windows Desktop

This process will allow you to create either 32 or 64 bit live USB thumbdrives with persistence.

* Meaning: It'll behave just like a real system and remember what changes you make and programs you install, etc.

Prerequisites:

Desktop PC with unetbootin and both 32 & 64 bit MX .iso files on it.

* For MX Linux that would mean MX-17.n_x64.iso MX-17.n_386.iso

* 2ea blank USB thumbdrives >= 8G (recommend 8G for source drive and 32G for target/final product drive)

wifi suspend issues

Wifi works great, except resuming from Suspend

Troubleshooting: Does it work if you click on the network widget in the taskbar, then disconnect and reconnect to the access point? Some laptops would exhibit this symptom--it would say it was connected after the resume, but no bits would come over the connection until the above was executed. steveo's fix was to add the wi-fi driver module to a file that unloads it before suspend and reloads it after resume.

Remote access

A remote desktop is "a software or operating system feature that allows a personal computer's desktop environment to be run remotely on one system (usually a PC, but the concept applies equally to a server), while being displayed on a separate client device."
