What would be the most suitable - something like FreeSBIE?

That's possible. You do understand that flash drives only have very limited # of write cycles before they fail, and should be operated in read-only mode most of the time?

I've only heard that on this list.

This is from wikipedia - search "flash drive"
Recently there has been the increasing emergence of low cost "ROM-only" chips in USB drives, instead of regular flash memory that is rated for use up to 100,000 write cycles. ROM-only chips only last 5-10 cycles and are generally used for storing the Firmware in embedded devices.
