All you have to do is make the usb device bootable and have syslinux installed on it. Also have the squash.fs file on an ext3 partition on any other device. Once you get to the sylinux prompt make a directory. Mount the squash.fs file into that directory using the loop switch. Then load the loop device that is made in the process.
This will allow you to run the live dvd. Once the live dvd is running you can mount the squash.fs image in the /mnt/livecd folder that already exists and then run the installer to complete the process.
