Response to: what defines "system"?

If by copy you meant in

Then, tar up the whole system you want on the final system, and untar it into the /livecd directory (or copy it, directories and all, as you prefer).

there is a clue in the next sentence

Copy your /var and /etc directories to /livecd/backups/{var,etc}


That means duplicate the parts of the currently running system, starting at the root of your file syste, /, that you are using to build the LiveCD in the /livecd directory tree.


For example



cp -pR /etc /livecd
as well as other cp commands


or



tar -cf /tmp/mytarfile /
