Re: Installing from a livecd

for lenny, the defaults are that syslinux menu is enabled, so you get a
menu to select entries from.
you're either building with an old version of live-helper, or have
disabled the syslinux menu.
if you insist on not using the syslinux menu, the targets to boot the
installer are the same as for regular installation media, means
'install', 'installgui', 'expert', 'expertgui', 'rescue', 'rescuegui',
'auto', and 'autogui'.

If only 2 lowercase letter are specified (like "it"), the "maybe wanted" locale is generated (like en:EN.UTF-8), in this case if also "keyb=" is unspecified is set with those 2 lowercase letters (keyb=us). Beside that facility, only UTF8 locales are supported by live-initramfs.

it's not an option, it's an own target, see above.
