Squashfs support in the live CD

Registered by Matt Zimmerman on 2005-10-20

As of Ubuntu 5.10, the live filesystem used on the Ubuntu live CD is a cloop-compressed ext2 filesystem. Squashfs is a compressed, read-only filesystem which should provide superior compression ratios and improve performance. It should be supported by casper as an option, and considered for use as the default configuration.
