Don't know if this is possible with isolinux: It would be much easier
for non-english users if they could choose their language at the

But a menu or submenu for non-experienced users would be the best, I
think.

The problem is that doing this in the bootloader is really not at all
ideal.  You don't have any ability to have a11y and bootloaders suck to
hack on.

This is why the GNOME live CD goes to gdm instead of just doing
automatic login now.  With the facebrowser, you can select the user and
you can also select the language pretty easily

That's nice and all, but still it'd be best to be able to set the default system language from the get go... Maybe something a la Knoppix for this would be helpful? What I mean is that the default (en_us) locale keyboard will stick no matter if you login via GDM with another language. Maybe the easiest way would be to change the keyboard map to that of the locale when logging into the fedora session in the LiveCD, or skip GDM altogether and do it with boot parameters (only a page for the boot loader explaining the options to be passed would be required)
so it'd be something like boot: linux lang=ES_mx or something similar.
