Help!!! help!!! I down loaded Linux on a flash drive and run it from it. Problem is it won't remember passwords and if I install
any programs the flash drive won't remember them either. What do I need to do to fix this problem?

How did you load Linux on the flash drive?
Live Linux on a flash drive will load exactly the same every time unless it has persistence.
I would use The Universal USB Installer from here to put the ISO you have downloaded onto the flash drive.
Not all distros will allow persistence. I use Linux Mint 13 with the Mate desktop. It does.
