Thanks for Sharing all that work! I have been strugling with the piaf installation on my new acer veriton for a week now! I'm realy suprised how we still depend on harcheic optical drives... I have folowed your direction last night and it worked like a charm! But even though it was late and I was getting tired, I'm pretty sure I never got prompted for anything like root password and keyboard language... Is it only me? So this morning I'm left with what appear as a succesful installation but I dont know the root password. Thanks!
