debian installer was mentioned in previous emails..
Anyway, if you are facing only the installation from a
LiveCD, instlux may not be usefull.

Sometimes you can not boot with the CD. It happens
quite often.
Moreover, starting the installation from windows is
more user-friendly, as it is the same way a windows
user will install any other program, so it is used to
it. It is a matter of usability.
