I was thinking something different. If you leave everything by default
you get Fedora 9 live cd installed with english and OOo in english.

In Live CD installer you choose your country and/or language of your
choice and then you are presented with two options to load language
packs for gnome and Ooo from CD2 or download them if you are online.
And then everything else is still installed from CD1. Yes it is a
messy idea... but still maybe somebody has a better one...


Thats pretty much what i proposed, i think is a good idea to let the user choose its language and if it doesnt fit on the liveCD then it could be downloaded from the internet. Someway or another non-english-speakers will have to deal with english during his FOSS experience, and leaving English as the default language isnt going to change that much (remember that DVD iso's default language is english and it change ass soon as you select another language). so we could add the translation just for the Anaconda installer and leave the rest of the LiveCD with its default language, and if needed, the other languages could be downloaded from the internet.
