Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-10-07 10:41:36 EDT
The live images are "installed" by copying over the actual filesystem image; since the live images are ext3, so is the root of the installed fs.  There's really not any way around this (doing a file-based copy is orders of magnitude slower to the point of being pretty infeasible)
