    Uhm... Well... You could install it on every system it touches, or
    install an OS on the memory stick and boot from it, on machines
    that support it.

    Which do you want to do? Would you be going to the same machine
    in multiplicity, or multiple machines?

    Isn't it best to put the installers on the memory stick and install it
    as need be?

    Looks as if you dump the files to a pendrive ( and then click start.bat.

    May require some tweaking.

    I tried this and it did not work.  I am extremely new to this and need some detailed instructions.

    I think the main issue you might have with this configuration is that you have to have a working version of apache/php/mysql before you attempt to put them onto the usb stick.  Once you have working copies on your computer you should then copy them across to the USB stick and make the neccessary changes as outlined in the article (mainly changes folder locations etc).

    it should be able to run straight on the stick.
