Running a full node on a bootable Linux USB>

howdy, there is a guide on here about running a full node on tails but none for other distros like ubuntu on a bootable USB will something like this work: equipment: - 8 gigs of RAM - 16 gigs of space on USB stick and loaded with bootable Ubuntu iso - 500 gigs of spare space on a hard disk for blockchain - computer steps: - start computer on bootable USB - Ubuntu starts up, plug in that hard drive - download monero gui - MAKE SURE MONERO GUI DOWNLOADS BLOCK CHAIN TO **HARD DRIVE** OTHERWISE BLOCK CHAIN WILL BEGIN TO SIT IN RAM which is a tiny 8 gigs only - use the shiny gui to access them xmrs after blockchain syncs will that work? usually a bootable USB keeps EVERYTHING in RAM. everything. That's why it ain't persistent. So I guess the main question is how to prevent it from downloading the blockchain to RAM and instead use an external storage (hard drive) to keep the block chain.
Go to self.Monero
