Yes I've installed F9 Live with persistent data.
I need to be able to log in as root to use the file system to delete a /etc/pulse/daemon.config swop file created in error using vim in a terminal while trying to get Skype audio to work. Deletion via the file system isn't allowed as an automatic login-assigned Fedora Live user.
If there's no simpler solution than the ones outlined in your link - for which many thanks - it would probably be quicker and safer for me to reinstall F9 Live.
