No idea. It's almost certainly possible to save your
work on a usb stick and probably easier.

Most live CDs are installable these days, (K)Ubuntu,
Knoppix, Gnoppix, Mepis, Morphix all have installers
on the live CD so far as I can remember.

I'm not sure why you would want to install one though
these days. For learning about Linux, stick to one or
two main distros. Most distros fall under the category
of being a Debian (Ubuntu, Mepis, Knoppix, Morphix)
derivative or Red Hat derivative (Fedora, Mandriva,
CentOS). Pick one from both camps and what you find is
common to both will be true of most Linuxes, what
differs will be specific to that line of Linux
heritage, which will still cover a bit under half of
the Linux world.

I'm not sure what running 3 or 4 different Linux
systems would teach you that would be applicable to
the rest of the Linux world.

If you are after the most comfortable user experience,
then DSL won't be it, you will find it more with one
of the bigger distros.

I can't understand what you will gain from it, but if
you just want to do it because you want to do it then
ignore me, I'm just treading on your inquisitive

Apologies if I'm being a bit harsh.
