It's fairly simple. You boot the live CD. It has services you don't
want on installed to the USB drive. So, the installer script, prior to
copy-all, just invokes the CD's own package manager and un-installs the
unwanted packages from the running CD system. Then it performs the
copy-all to hard disk.
Nothing extra to download, nothing extra to delete from the hard drive.
All done with package management. Faster execution time and no bad
Thank you Jimmy,
