I saw your post and congratulations for solving your problem.

in my case:

a) I don't think one can just copy stuff over to a livecd and have it 
work. one has to deal with the special filesystem on a livecd; and

b) I don't want to install the system, I want to boot it, for instance 
on a friend's Windows machine without disturbing their setup.
