I just discovered that you can copy paste the "telepathy-gabble-0.9.11-1.fc14.i686.rpm" 


file into the opened USB folder on a PC Desktop from where you have previously downloaded it to the PC Desktop.
Do the same with the SugarClone script:


Then when you boot from the USB, You have a self duplicating USB

In sugar-terminal:
rpm -Uvh /mnt/live/telepathy-gabble-0.9.11-1.fc14.i686.rpm
Reboot the USB and Presence service will work.
and then:
/mnt/SugarClone will duplicate the customized USB, with the fixed presence service, to a 2nd USB of the same type.
