The Live Image itself is ext4.  That is wrapped up in a squashfs file,
and then the file and some boot loader files are placed either on a CD
or on a USB device.  The format of the USB device doesn't matter much,
vfat, ext[2,3], etc.. so long as the bootloader can boot it.  It does
not have to match the filesystem that is in the squashfs image.
