VL 5.8 LiveCD - where is hard drive installer?

The hard drive installer that has been problematic is fixed and should work well.

Thanks, devs, for the LiveCD. Where is the hard drive installer? Or have I confused the nomenclature here...is the hard drive installer an install option?

I'm at work now but if I remember correctly it is under 'system' and is called 'vlliveinstaller' or something similar. It should be an icon on the desktop to make it more obvious.

I see it! Yes, I totally agree with you--the VL live installer should have a Desktop icon.

Vmenu > System > vlliveinstaller

Okay.... I'm trying to install as well and I'm a little confused - there is no such application under any menu option or on the CD.  And after better than an hour and 50 or so passes, I can say that with absolute certainty - I'm not just missing it.  How do you install to the hard drive?  Why don't I have it?

Okie, I finally found it under appfinder, but it wasn't on the menus... I copied it to the desktop and ran it... been waiting for over an hour now but nothing has happened.  I see it running as a proccess, but nada.  What am I doing wrong?

update: RESOLVED
RESOLUTION: give up... lol
Since the live Gold CD is essentially the 5.8  standard (isn't it?), I gave up and just installed the 5.8 Standard on my laptop... and I'm ROCKING AND ROLLING!  :-)
This is the only distro that's worked with my wireless card so I'm a happy alien.

Stupid question:

Is this vlliveinstall safe for flash drives? ( because of the number of writes. . . )
