This is working by the way on a Mint Linux disk 32bit which I had. Its the only way I can gain access quickly to see my emails and web search. Not the best of ways to work and use a comp!!
Why not use a portable Linux instead like Puppy or Slax? Puppy saves everything you do in a separate file on your hard disk (or anywhere you want) so that all your settings and files will not be lost. You could also try their multisession live-DVD (and CD). As for Slax, I haven't tried it yet but I heard it's good.

That way, you won't have to worry about these not loading or changing kernel problems on your system. In theory, a portable and not installed on your hard disk Linux should not cause these problems.
