shouldn't it just test for it at the start, and provide the question 
before it starts reading, because at the momemnt the y/n question comes 
after the reading.

BTW: have anyone been working on a transplant script for TL09? By this I 
mean a script that can be used when one wants to more a TL09 
installation from one mashine to a Windows, and then integrate it into 
windows (menus, PATH and stuff). There was a script in TL08, that almost 
did all of this.

It will be very handy for install parties, because installing via web or 
from DVD is a bit too slow if you have say 20 people trying to install 
at once.

Then having the entire installation on a USB will making the 
installation a lot faster. (at least in theory)
