The thing is, we should assume that a user able to download the LiveCD
and who is willing to install fedora on his computer might have a little
knowledge of English (if that is not true then the user might not be
able to install any distro at all, not even fedora DVD iso as it starts
in english). And so if the option to choose the language appears as the
first step the user could just obvious that it is for language selection
(as almost all installers set the first step to choose the installation
language), then we could add a "small language support" to the liveCD so
the installer can change its language as selected by the user (and only
the installer).
