I have started working on a SOAS implementation using Ubuntu 8.10 as the underlying OS.

The first release with all of it's bugs is here:
http://www.mungewell.org/sugar-emulator/

The (linux) application to create a LiveUSB from a running LiveCD or download '.iso' is called usb-creator (is python/gtk should should be ok to sugarize ;-)

There are multiple applications which allow one to create a LiveUSB from a LiveCD 'iso' from the Windows desktop/prior to burning/running the linux CD. For example http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

We would need to consider whether the method of creating persistance is compatable across differ OS bases...

This can be closed out now, right? I was able to make a LiveUSB with Intrepid using the directions on the page.

yes, this can be closed although we need a howto in the wiki describing the process.
