from your live media point of view, filesystem.squashfs now resides in
/debian_live where live-boot does not find it.

live-boot, unless told otherwise with live-media-path, only looks in /live.

either adjust the location, or use live-media-path. see man live-boot
for more information.

xdebconf is not used in live-boot, you might want to remove that one.

always try the newest ones.. for lenny, that is 5.0.6...
