Can anyone let me know which package to download so the  two commands
I searched the reps of FC7 and did not find any clue. It is good to
have the persistent overlay setting.

As shown above, the live-boot-stick is in the first partition which I
can not make any change
as it is created by the dd command.  I am curious how to change  the
read only file system to be writeable.
Thanks for any  the response.
