Yes and no. It will run just fine, however you'll lose things like the automatic start at bootup. Also, Freenet is not expected to work well with low uptime; it really, really wants to run 24x7 or close to it. Connecting for a couple hours a day won't work nearly as well. Also, I highly recommend using a data store of several GB, which is getting large by flash drive standards.
