I was able to get OpenSUSE installed on a USB using the pendrive site. I have since installed OpenSUSE on my laptop and its working great. Wish I had switched before this.
I was able to use OpenSUSE from the USB that made surfing the net faster.
I was also able to save programs to a second USB, the problem is, it was difficult to
save files to the USB with Linux on it.

I did figure out a way to use the sudo command, and sudo the Word Processor to get it to save files into the isofrom directory. I believe I also had to change the file permissions on the directory with the chmod command.

Does anyone know an easier way to make the USB with the OS writable so I don't lose my work if I'm working off the USB stick?? Normally everything I work on is lost and nothing is saved permanently. Any advice appreciated, like I mentioned, already upgraded Laptop with the OS and then I don't have the problem.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions someone might have.

That sounds right. I just upgrade the system. Another solution is to use one USB
with a Linux OS and another USB stick for files. It seems a little more user friendly.
Previously, it was necessary to use a mount command to access files on external storage.

The problem I've seen with the above is if the computer is a slow computer and the stick has lots of files, it can still take awhile to load in the Linux File Manager. While having Linux usually squeezes the most out of a computer, its possible to still be constrained by an older computer.
