Best way to run a full linux distro from a flash drive?

For the short term, I'm going to run linux off of a little usb flash
drive on this router computer, rather than spring for a full-on SSD.
Some things are going to be much slower this way, but routing and
firewalling will be unaffected. So my question is how should I partition
things and set up the file systems to run optimally, survive resets,
etc? Except when doing system updates, the root file system should
probably be read-only. And tmp should probably be tmpfs. Probably
/var/run and /var/tmp as well. Any other ideas? I might make /etc its
own partition so I can manage dansguardian via webmin.
I'm using a 4 GB stick at the moment.
