Well there is a HOWTO for that on the Wiki at

but I don't think that Sharon was asking about a way to create a bootable
image of the ISO on a USB stick in order to install on a system with no CD.

I understood that the goal was to install Lunar on an external USB hard
disk, install applications and customize the system, and be able to boot
from it. What I wonder is whether this disk will be detached and moved
between different systems...
