liveusb is designed as a very simple tool (think of people who don't know what a partition is), so there is currently no setting to change the partition size.

What partition scheme would you want?

Ok, i guess i sort of get that... but can ubuntu have a live cd like http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2008/07/30/all-in-one-pendrivelinux-2008/ ? Basically what happens is that both the home and the system is live, Both work as one. Also, how can i edit the, partition manually, so i can change the usb to have programs i want.

Google for "casper-rw".

This is outside of the scope of the liveusb tool, however.
(In my tests, it was slow and unreliable, ymmv.)

Can you help with this problem?
