Well, yeah, that's what it's supposed to do.  When you boot from a
"livecd" image, that's all you're doing - booting from that image.  It
doesn't install anything.

Again, I'm no expert here, but if you can get a livecd image written
on a USB flash drive to boot, you should be able to get a netinstall
cd image to boot just as well, from a USB drive.  That "should" do the
trick (if it will boot at all).

Someone, please, correct me if I'm wrong....
