live system?

if you are refering to live-installer, this is just to persuade d-i
installing the system by unpacking the squashfs image rather than
debootstrapping and installing from .deb files. the rest is the same.

regular d-i images also don't use live-installer, it is only present on
live-cds when they have, in addition, d-i on board (in order to allow
installing of the live-system to the harddisk).
