How to save settings of ubuntu live cd?

I have ubuntu cd and i run live os from cd. But when i switch of my computer all settings are deleted. For example if i have installed any program at that moment then it gets deleted when i shut down my computer. Is there any method to save the settings and programs so that whenever i start my computer i can use those settings which i have used earlier ?

    You can’t, you need to fully install it to do so.

    If it’s a live CD, then everything you do will be lost at system shutdown. CD’s are read-only media, which means that data can only read from them, not written to or deleted. That’s why none of your installed programs are saving.

    If you really like Ubuntu, then see about installing it to your hard drive, that way changes you make will still be there when you restart.

    No, your best bet would be to install it to a USB flash drive with persistence. It will run much much faster than a Live CD, everything will save, and it will function as a hard drive install would.

    There is much to be said for running from LiveCD

    The major downside is settings cannot be saved between sessions so it is better to use a Linux distro. that will work out of the box without the need to install things like Flash player and multimedia codecs.

    Ubuntu does not lend itself well to this as you need to install packages to get the most out of it

    I thoroughly recommend Linux Mint 8 Main Edition which is built upon Ubuntu 9.10 Its easy to use plus it comes with much of the software you are likely to need preinstalled

    I am not suggesting Linux Mint 9 as there are issues with enabling 3D acceleration when running from the LiveCD
