Why not just run the whole thing from the usb device? Not possible for all devices I know though.

    My company has been running several generic-pc m0n0wall routers for
    some time now. We are using the 1.2bX versions. Some are using hard
    drives, others are using the cdrom version. I'd prefer to use the
    cdrom version for all of them (ease of upgrade etc), but the flakyness
    of modern floppy disks and floppy drives makes me worried about
    putting one of those in a remote location. Not to mention how slow it
    is to save the config to the floppy drive.
    
    Would it be difficult to modify the generic-pc-cdrom version to store
    its settings on a usb pen drive? They have replaced all other uses of
    floppy disks in my life.
