I don't understand your question. If you want to use it during an install then,
of course, it must be connected during that install. If you just want to use it
later then you just need to connect it later. The application which makes it
work as a braille display is brltty, so you really only need it connected while
brltty is running.

You'll need to tell brltty which serial port your BrailleNote is connected to. 
You can do this via brltty's -d option or via its braille-device configuration
file directive. Specify something like: serial:ttyS0
