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
error/warning messages.

Thank you Jimmy,
