Because I don't have a library ;-)

I am not trying to make a working installation for myself. I am trying 
to make more people start using Koha. Because I think the program is 
very useful for a lot of people.

Unfortunately they often give up, before they really get started. 
Therefore I want to make the entry level as low as anyway possible. The 
live DVD is a wonderful way to make more people use Koha. The people 
that I am dealing with are typically having small school-libraries (with 
max 10.000 items). They have never been working at a terminal (not even 
in Windows).

Suggesting that they should make a manual installation of Koha - because 
that is better in the long term, is pure theory without ANY connection 
to reality. It simply will not happen. The only thing you may accomplish 
that way, is preventing them from using Koha.
